Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Chaparral Elementary School! My name is Mrs. Bennett and I am so excited to have you apart of our 5th grade class! I will be your Math and Science teacher this year. This is my fourth year teaching and I am very excited to do it at the Chaparral Shark Tank. I cannot wait to keep on swimming at Chaparral!
I was born in West Hills, California and moved to Arizona when I was three years old. Even though I was not born here, I still consider myself an AZ native. I graduated with my Bachelors in Education at Arizona State University (GO DEVILS!). I love spending time with my husband, Abraham, my six month old daughter, Evelyn, and my giant dogs, Potter and Penny. I also enjoy traveling, watching Harry Potter, and reading!
I believe that every student has the ability to learn! I hope to prepare my students for the future by instilling in them the abilities to realize their potential and face new challenges with an open mind! It is my ultimate purpose to provide a safe environment where students are allowed to open their minds to new ideas and concepts and question the things around them. I hope to prepare my students to be critical thinkers and worthy citizens by setting high expectations and encouraging ownership in the classroom.
