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.
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!
