Merenda Benge

I am currently in my 19th year as an educator in the Rowan-Salisbury School System. I have been a Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, and 4th Grade classroom teacher. Currently, I am a Technology Facilitator at Morgan Elementary School. Each day, I help teachers integrate technology into their curriuclum, ensure that teachers have the equipment and tools that they need to teach 21st Century skills, and work with students from Pre-School to 5th Grade. I have become a leader in my county by assisting with planning coutnty wide staff development and preparing technology presentations for teachers all throughout the county. I also teach a begining computer class at Rowan/Cabarrus Community College one night a weeek for adult learners. I love teaching and view everything I do in the field of education as an opportunity for learning.
