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 14 years ago at Odenville Elementary School, moved to Odenville Intermediate and then moved to AES in January 2014. I have worked with children of various need levels and I LOVE IT!


I am Fanci Smith Benefield, a Special Education Instructional Assistant. I have been married to my husband Eric for 2 years. We have 5 children, 4 boys and 1 girl. I lived in Ashville until 2 years ago when Eric and I married but, I attended Odenville schools. We reside in Talladega.
