Intermediate & Middle School Art Teacher
Meet Allie Benson! Allie was first introduced to the Heritage community while student teaching through Taylor's University. She graduated with degrees in Art Education and Psychology and currently teaches Intermediate and Middle School Art for Heritage.
Allie loves turning her classroom into a space for expression and relaxation from the pressures of everyday life. Her art room is also a place to build deeper relationships with her students—and talk to them about how faith in God “changes the way we do everything.”
“To me, teaching art is much more than providing lesson plans and projects for my students,” she says, “It's about building connections and listening to my students needs to encourage them in anyway that I can.”
Benson is pictured above with her husband, Danny (HCS Class of 2009), and golden retriever, Charles Barkley.
