I have taught at BISH since 2007. I grew up in Exeter, Devon and loved it so much there I went to the University of Exeter where I obtained a BA Hons in Geography. Following that I went to the University of Bristol to undertake a PGCE in Humanities with Geography as my main subject.
My main geographical interests are development and population studies and I was lucky enough to broaden my experience in this area in 2006 when I undertook a 2 week teacher study visit to India, teaching in under-privileged state schools and working with locals in a local village as well as completing a study to compare the level of development between the rural area and the nearest big city; Bangalore. I believe first hand experiences such as this are the best way for anyone to develop their understanding of different places, so my goal to develop the opportunity for students in BISH to have this kind of experience.
I love to travel and I have been to many parts of Asia, Europe, and Australasia. I have now been to all of the 50 States in the USA. I am a keen runner and have completed 9 half marathons and 1 full marathon.
What the students say about me
"Mrs Bennett has enabled me the opportunity to explore geographical concepts in a manner that I find exciting, fun, and ultimately valuable."
'Mrs Bennett is an amazing teacher who is great at helping students thrive in their learning."
"Mrs Bennett is one of the loveliest teachers at the school. She is so helpful and makes lessons fun."
This school is different to all others I have worked at because…
This school is great because of the students. They allow for you to take risks in the classroom and always want to stretch them to be the best they can. Nord Anglia’s philosophy of HPL supports this.
