Ms. Waddell

Hello! My name is Ms. Waddell. I am a second grade teacher and this is my fourth year teaching at Benson Elementary. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. In my spare time I love to spend time with my family, friends, and my many critters at home. I love animals as I have cats, goats, a pig, a dog, and any other animal that is in need. I love art and being creative. I am thrilled to be teaching second grade and my overall goal is to allow students to succeed and grow by providing them with the materials and knowledge to do so. I am excited about a great year to come! "So often you find that the students you are trying to inspire, are the ones that end up inspiring you."
