Mrs. Bennett: Queen of Teaching


Julia Hampton

Mrs. Bennett, one of the teachers at Davis High, teaches quite a bit of the available classes here at Davis: AP world, psych, history of film, and study skills. She has been a teacher now for 14 years.

Mrs. Bennett started teaching in California where she is originally from. She taught there for 2 years, moved to Utah and taught at Syracuse Jr High for 3, Syracuse High for 5 years, and continues to teach here and has been for the past 4 years. She is an amazing teacher who has great value for what she lectures on, and cares about all of her students.

Teaching is no easy task,

“I do sometimes hate it, but at the end of the day I can’t imagine doing anything else.”

She didn’t always think that she would be a teacher,

“I thought I was going to be rescue swimmer for the coast guard, and a fire fighter.”

Her biggest pet peeve that goes on in her class room are cell phones. She says that she could get behind a no cell phone policy. It is easier to focus and do things in class without one. One of her biggest goals with teaching is,

“If I can make a difference in one student’s life, then it’s all been worth it.”

She is such an amazing teacher, we are all lucky to have her here at Davis.
