Kelsey answers the question, Why did you choose Benton? "Once a Bobcat, Always a Bobcat! As a former Bobcat, I was able to do some subbing in the district prior to accepting a job. It was a no brainer to say yes when the job was offered to me. In my first years I was able to work alongside teachers that I once had as teachers. I got to know them on a different level and I was able to learn things from them in a different role. Also, now that I have a child, I can't wait to see him grow up a Bobcat and experience all the great things I was able to experience while growing up in this supportive community!"
