Welcome to Ms. Obenshain's Website

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

    My name is Alex Obenshain. I live in Evans, Georgia. I have lived in Augusta most of my life. I graduated from Georgia Southern University in 2011. I have two cats, Lexi and Darly. 

     This is my sixth year teaching at Thomson Elementary School. Before teaching in McDuffie County, I spent 3 years in Columbia County working with children with autism. I currently hold a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education, as well as a teaching certification in Special Education.

     This year, I am a Special Education teacher. I work with students in a small group setting to help them achieve success academically and behaviorally. I have high expectations for all of my students. My students should arrive at school prepared and ready to learn. In order for us to have a productive learning environment, we have no time for behavior issues. 

     Parent conferences may take place after school or during my planning time. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me. You can reach me by email at obenshaina@mcduffie.k12.ga.us.

     I look forward to working with your child this year!
