Ms. Courteney Benson

Hello friends and families! My name is Courteney Benson and this is my third year teaching art at Grannemann Elementary. I am so thankful to be teaching art because I’m able to share my passion and help our students grow to become creative thinkers. Art is such a powerful vessel for expressing yourself and who you are. Virtually all of the powerful social changes in the world throughout history have been associated with art. Art gives us freedom, expression, and most of all, a voice. Without it, the world would be a dull, sad place, and children’s minds are naturally receptive to the creative process and self-expression. It is my intention to nurture that innate creativity and help my students grow to become empathetic, passionate, thoughtful humans. I want to be remembered as someone who loved her students endlessly and advocated for them to be the best versions of themselves that they can be.
