Sandy Benton

Wisconsin Green Schools Network
Co-Founder & Leadership Team
Sandy Benton is passionate about teaching and learning. Her experiences and research as both a literacy coach and a classroom teacher indicate that deep, lasting learning occurs when instruction is learner-centered, interdisciplinary, hands-on, and grounded in real world experiences. These understandings motivated Sandy to co-found Fox River Academy (FRA), an environmental charter school, in 2005. She collaborated with colleagues from across Wisconsin to create FIELD Edventures (formerly known as WGSN) and has worked as a coach and consultant to develop and implement rigorous place-based and inquiry-based learning experiences in numerous schools. Sandy received her undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from University of Wisconsin-Madison and her Master's Degree in Reading Education from University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.
