Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Leann Cook
I am originally from Connecticut and I moved down to North Carolina to go to college. I went to Barton College in Wilson, NC for 4 years. I lived in Wilson for a while before I got the job here at Benson Elementary. My family and I then moved to Clayton and then Four Oaks. I have two boys: Mikey is 9 and is in 3rd grade this year, and Aidan who is 5.
I love to teach! It has been my passion since I was in elementary school. I used to take my teacher's extra worksheets and play school at home! The 2019-2020 school year will be my 12th year teaching and my 8th at Benson Elementary.
