After eight years of teaching metro-Detroit children in primary grades and junior high Dr. Benson began teaching adults. In church adult education settings she taught scripture, theology, and spirituality. While completing her dissertation, she taught theology and spirituality in a formation program for young Catholic religious and in a sabbatical program for Roman Catholics from around the world. Listening to the women and men on sabbatical these three years opened her eyes to concrete reality beyond the oceans. The personal and cultural richness they shared touched her deeply and challenged her to stretch her horizons.

In August of 2005, she began teaching at ETS as associate professor of spirituality. She loves teaching mature adults in an ecumenical setting and feels called not only to impart knowledge but to raise consciousness regarding the connection between faith and social issues including the plight of Earth today.
