Mrs. Benson

Mrs. Benson has been at Payson High School from the moment it opened, she was a sophomore when the school was first built. She raised a family for the first part of her marriage, and then she started working as a substitute at the school. After working as a substitute for a while she moved on and taught home economics, after which she taught at-risk kids which she absolutely loved. An opportunity opened for Mrs. Benson when a counselor quit, so Mrs. Benson went back to school at the University of Phoenix and acquired her master's degree and became a counselor. Mrs. Benson wants students to remember to “be happy, try your best, and to love you’re doing.”
