Mrs. Leslie Benko

Welcome to 7 North Language Arts! I'm so excited to be your LA teacher this year! 

This is my 15th year teaching in Solon and 17th year teaching overall. I've taught 7th to 10th grade in Solon over the years. I'm glad to have landed in 7th! I love my students and I love reading! My passion is helping students find the perfect books for them. I read lots of adult books and tons of young adult books to help my students in selecting books. Right now, my favorite book is Free Lunch.

Outside of school, I love spending time with my family! I'm married and have three little guys in my life. Reagan is 8, Luke is 6 and Noah is 2. They love to read too! We love taking hikes, swimming, travelling together, skiing and cooking. I also have a huge extended family! I have 6 brothers and sisters. I'm a twin and I love doing life with my siblings and many, many nieces and nephews!
