Althea Benton

Hello, I’m Althea Benton. This is my first year at Tapestry as a special education teacher co-teaching English and Social Studies. I am very excited to join this amazing group of educators in order to work with such interesting and talented students. Although I am early in my teaching career, I come to Tapestry with experience as a college admissions professional and counselor, and most recently a kindergarten and special education paraprofessional. It took me a while to answer the call to teach.

Beyond my work life, I enjoy the arts (theatre and music), reading, history, and movies. Ask me about a city in the United States and I have probably lived there. My husband and I have one adult son who is a proud alumnus of Georgia Tech and Mercer University.
