About Ms. Bennett
The Expressions of Ms. Bennett

I became a teacher to help kids to learn to succeed. 
The tool that I use is Music. 
I believe that all children can succeed and that if I teach them how to learn, that they can achieve anything that they want to in life.

My career began as a student at Houghton College in upstate NY. 
I was studying pre-med, but my love of music took over and I changed to Music Ed. 
From there, I transferred to the University of Minnesota where I graduated with a B.S. in Music Education. 
After my first few years of teaching, I took courses at University of St. Thomas, working towards additional licenses and almost finished a Masters in Music.  
IT was a strong interest of mine, so I graduated with a Masters in Software Systems from University of St. Thomas.

Whittier has been my home since it opened in 1997. 
Prior to that, I taught Classroom Music at Powderhorn and High School Band and Choir in Silver Valley Unified School District in California.
