Mrs. Deanna Bentley
My name is Michelle Bentley, and I will be teaching 7th grade Social Studies. This is my first year at Dubose Middle.
I was born in Charleston, and I am a graduate of Hanahan High School. I studied Political Science and Sociology at the College of Charleston where I received my Bachelor’s Degree. I went on to be a criminal defense paralegal for many years before I discovered I wanted to be a teacher. I went back to the College of Charleston where I received my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education. After passing my Social Studies praxis, I am now certified to teach grades 7-12 in addition to grades 1-6.
Before coming to DuBose, I taught 2nd grade at Knightsville Elementary. I helped open William Reeves Elementary where I taught 2nd grade and 5th grade. I have taught all subject areas in elementary education.
Outside of school, I enjoy being with my family, my friends, and most importantly my two dogs, Sadie and Sullivan. I enjoy being outside and being in and on the water. My favorite place to go is the beach. I also love to fish and kayak. I love all sports, but football and basketball are my favorites. I also love the Clemson Tigers!
Being new to Dubose Middle will be challenging, but I am looking forward to the adventure!
