Mrs. Legg


Hello!  I am excited to be at Benhaven Elementary this year!  My name is Clarissa Legg.  This is my ninth year teaching.  I have worked in Cumberland County and a charter school.  I have taught first, second, and third grade.  I grew up in Indiana.  I received my Bachelor's degree from Michigan State University in Special Education and Elementary Education. In 2020, I received my Master's degree from Appalachian State University in Curriculum and Design. 


About Me

In my free time, I like to go hiking and spend time with family.  My husband and I love to travel. I have seen four out of the seven continents and want to hit all of them.  I have known I wanted to teach since I was sixteen years old.  I love seeing the lightbulb go on and a student's confidence grow in the classroom.  I cannot wait to see what this year will bring!
