Mrs. Lisa McDowell

My name is Mrs. McDowell and I am starting my 8th year at Benson Elementary and my 19th year teaching in Johnston County Public Schools. I am excited about being your child's STEM teacher! I am also the Coach for North Carolina Science Olympiad for 3rd-5th graders at Benson.

A little about me...I graduated from East Carolina University with an Elementary Education Degree (K-6); a Reading Licensure (K-12) and have since become AIG Certified (K-12) and completed my Master's in Elementary Education (Curriculum and Instruction; K-6) from NC State University. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher (Middle Childhood Generalist). I look forward to working with you and teaching your child!

On a personal note, Mr. McDowell and I welcomed our daughter, Edna, in October of 2016! She is starting Kindergarten at BES this year! He married into my love of NC State athletics and Edna loves sporting her NC State gear! She also looks very good in purple---Go Pirates!
