Please help us welcome Dr. Amber Hays to the Falcon Family!
Dr. Hays will be serving as the school psychologist for the whole GCMS school district. This year will be her 11th year as a school psychologist; it's a job that she always wanted to do--she even shadowed a school psychologist in high school! Some of her hobbies include musical theater, cooking, taking care of her cats, and reading. Her all-time favorite childhood book is “Where the Red Fern Grows” but she also loves the Harry Potter series and has even been sorted into Slytherin house! Dr. Hays’ favorite thing to teach is using puppets to teach preschool children about emotions and friendships. When asked what she is looking forward to about GCMS, Dr. Hays reported “I am so very excited to work with students with disabilities from preschool all the way through high school! I can’t wait to start getting to know students and their families!!!”
Sounds like you will fit right in here at GCMS, Dr. Hays! Welcome to the Falcon Family team! #IChoseGCMS

We are #FalconProud to welcome back another hometown graduate to our teaching staff this fall!
Mr. Jeremiah Benison was born and raised in Gibson City and graduated in the class of 2001. His wife, Melissa, is also a graduate of GCMS and they have one son, Brady. This fall, Mr. Benison will be teaching the Computers “special” at GCMS Elementary School. His favorite video games are Fortnite and Magic Arena. Right now he is reading “Dwarves” by Markus Heitz--some of his other favorite epic fantasy novels include the “Sword of Truth” Series by Terry Goodkind, “Lord of the Rings” by JRR Tolkein, and the “Inheritance” cycle by Christopher Paolini.
When asked about what other details he thinks families would be interested in Mr. Benison stated “I am the local Cubmaster in Rantoul in addition to being a self described geek, I love to be outside camping and hiking. I love all sports but especially football. My favorite team is the New England Patriots. We have two guinea pigs named Kylo and Chewy just like the star wars characters which me and my son are big fans of!”
We are thrilled to welcome Mr. Benison back into the Falcon community! #IChoseGCMSview image
