Degrees and Certifications:
Hi my name is Nikki Benjamin. I currently teach Exceptional Education at West Florence High School. This is my 14th year teaching. For the past 11 years I taught in the CATE Department. This is my second year teaching in the Exceptional Education Department. I mainly teach OC (Occupational Credential) English, but I also co-teach English 1 OC and Algebra 1 OC. I teach grades 9-12. I received my BS Degree in Business Administration from The University of South Carolina and received my initial teaching certificate through the SC Program of Alternative Certification. I received my Masters of Education in Educational Administration from Grand Canyon University in May of 2012. I also received my Masters of Education in Special Education: Multi-Categorical from Grand Canyon University in May of 2012. This is my thirteenth year as an educator and I am very happy I made the career change back in 2003. I am a single parent with one daughter. She is a very smart, intelligent 14 year old who loves to competitive dance. My angel is my heart, pride and joy and one of the main reasons I decided to further pursue my educational career.
