Mrs. Trussell

Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Trussell


My name is Maureen Trussell, and I am one of the First Grade teachers here at Benton Elementary.  Benton is a wonderful school, and I have enjoyed being able to teach First Grade tremendously. I have been teaching for over 25 years.  The first 16 years were in Kindergarten, and I have been here at Benton since 2005.  We have high expectations for all our students.  

I believe in providing a multitude of positive comments and compliments to the class and students as individuals throughout the day. We also work towards receiving special privileges by earning compliment points. I believe students respond better to positive reinforcements.  

I encourage all family members to actively participate in their child’s learning.  If you wish to help in the classroom, please call or email me.  If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me at school 453-4240 or email me at  I am looking forward to a great year
