Mrs. Melissa Smith
Hello, everyone, welcome to my website. I am currently a second grade teacher at Benson Elementary. I have been with Johnston County Schools for 24 years.
I started at the old Benson School when it was a K-8th school. I then moved to the new Benson Elementary School for two years. Next I left and went to South Smithfield Elementary for several years. I decided to come back to Benson because this is my home.
I have taught Kindergarden, First, Second, and Third grade. I graduated from Fayetteville State University with a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Elementary Education.
I love the beach, chocolate, and my two dogs, Harley and Hattie. I look forward to being your childs second grade teacher.
