Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Addie Schafer Benko
I am the theatre director at Woodgrove High School. This is my 6th year in the county. I have worked in K-12 classrooms. I graduated from William and Mary with a B.A in English and Theatre as well as an M.Ed. in Elementary Education with a literacy emphasis. I have volunteered frequently in the Caribbean (Honduras and Belize many times) working with students to provide English skills and life skill enrichment. I was a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Malaysia in 2015 and a Grosvenor Teaching Fellow in 2019 with National Geographic going on an educational expedition in Antarctica this past year. "The show must go on" despite this year's challenges so stay tuned for the various opportunities available to students.
