Ms. Waddell

Hello! My name is Ms. Waddell. I am a second grade teacher and this is my third 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 2 cats, 20 goats, 1 pig, 1 dog, and 11 outside cats. 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 the materials and knowledge to do so. I am excited for a great year to come!
