6th Grade Teacher – https://sites.google.com/odysseycharterschool.net/mrsbenton6thgrade/home
Brook Benton started teaching at Odyssey Charter School in 2020 teaching 6th grade Math and Science. Mrs. Benton was a Summa Cum Laude Honors Graduate from the University of West Georgia, with a BBA in Management, in 2014. Mrs. Benton also received her MBA/Accounting from Clayton State University in 2019. The earlier part of Mrs. Benton’s career was spent working on international business and corporate financial relations with a European company. It was during her time as a MBA scholar, and the influences of some of her most memorable professors such as Dr. Leon Prieto, however, that she started focusing her interests upon education and academia. The thought of being able to place forth efforts that were impactful to young minds versus making a company millions of dollars became a constant reminder and motivational point that eventually drove Mrs. Benton to become a Georgia Educator.
Mrs. Benton is married to her high school sweetheart, Jim. They have no children of their own but remain very involved with their much younger half siblings and nieces/nephews. In her free time Mrs. Benton enjoys hiking with her dogs, traveling, and spending time with family.
