Ms. Niena Varney
I am a transplanted yankee blooming in Benson. I have decided that who you are is not always where you come from. I was born and raised in Maine and moved to NC in 1995. We have lived, worked, played and ate in Benson since and I have loved every minute of it.
I received my GED with honors in 2002 from JCC. I had the 3rd highest score in the state for that year. I am proud to own that recognition. I graduated high honors from JCC with my Associates in Arts in 2011. My crowning moment is that I am a 2014 graduate of East Carolina University with certification areas in Language Arts, Science and Social Studies.
I have 4 sons ages 16-21. They build a beautiful and chaotic life for me and I wouldn't have it any other way. I love my dogs, Patriot Football, reading Young Adult Fiction novels and Big Brother!
Let's get ready to have an amazing year!! Welcome back Mustangs!!
