Mrs. Marcia Whitley

Welcome to my world! My name is Marcia Whitley, and I have been working in the Ben Hill County School System since 1999. I began my career as a paraprofessional. Then, I returned to college in 2001 to obtain a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia Southwestern. I returned to the workforce as a teacher in 2004, and have taught both 4th and 5th grade classes at Ben Hill Elementary. I have also completed requirements for a Masters Degree in Reading and Literacy through Walden University and an Education Specialist Degree in Leading and Learning from Georgia Southwestern. I also received my Gifted Endorsement in July of 2020. Currently, I teach a 4th grade enrichment, self-contained class and serve as a member of our school governance team.  Teaching is my passion, and I am committed to life long learning.
