Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Paul Benton
I was born in Stillwater, OK in 1958. I've since lived in New York, Maryland, Virginia, and now Alabama for the last 18 years. I have a degree in agriculture from Iowa State University and a degree in secondary education from University of South Alabama. My wife and I owned and operated an organic vegetable farm in Maryland for 12 years selling a wide variety of vegetables at farmers' markets around Washington DC. After moving to Alabama and getting my teaching certificate, I taught science and math to middle schoolers in Mobile and Baldwin counties for the last 16 years. I currently teach 8th grade math, algebra I, and math intervention here at Bay Minette Middle. I have one daughter, 27, who is currently living in Cairo, Egypt helping to resettle war refugees in the Middle East. My wife is retired from Faulkner State where she taught anthropology and sociology.
