Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Toni Roberts 

Welcome to Benton Grade School

My name is Toni Roberts.  This is my 17th year teaching, and my 13th year teaching at Benton .  After graduating from West Frankfort High School I began my college career at Southern Illinois University of Carbondale. I graduated with my bachelors in elementary education in 2000.  After accepting a job in the Ewing School District, I went back to SIUC to obtain my bachelors in special education.  I graduated from SIUC in 2003 with my special education degree.  I taught two years in a special education classroom before coming to Benton Grade School.  I was hired in Benton in 2005.  At this time I taught Kindergarten and 1st grade special education classes for four years.  I then began teaching Kindergarten.  I taught kindergarten until 2017.  I am currently the 5-8th grade Social Studies and Language Arts teacher.  In 2009, I completed my Masters degree in Administration from McKendree College.  My daughter, Makinley is 10 years old and is starting 5th grade at Ewing.  I also have a son, Lucas; he is 16 and is beginning his junior year of high school here in Benton.  I enjoy spending time with family, shopping, and watching baseball.  We also love attending all sporting events.
