I am a 1991 graduate of St. Clair County High School and completed my AA at Jefferson State Community College.



I began my career in education as a substitute teacher in 1992. I became an Instructional Assistant in 1995 at Odenville Middle School, moved to Odenville Elementary School as the Library Assistant in 1996 and the next year I was an in-class assistant with all 1st grade classes and one kindergarten class. I became a Special Education Instructional Assistant in 2001 at Odenville Elementary School, moved to Odenville Intermediate, then to AES in January 2014 and I have been at OMS since August 2016. I have worked with children of various need levels and I feel that God has blessed me with this position.


I am Fanci Smith Benefield, a Special Education Instructional Assistant. I have been married to my husband, Eric, since February 4, 2014. We have 5 children, 4 boys (Nathan George, Jacob George, Daniel George, Alex Benefield) and 1 girl (Caitlynn Benefield). I lived in Ashville until Eric and I married. I now reside in Talladega.
