My name is Ms Connie Bennett and this will be my 15th year teaching at Norfolk Public Schools. I received my Bachelors degree in K-12 Art Education and Masters degree in English as a Second Language at Wayne State College.
I am currently teaching art at Grant, Lincoln and Washington Elementary schools. I also teach Art Fundamental classes at Norfolk Senior High. Art has been my passion for many years and I feel blessed that I am able to share it with my students
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have two children and 3 grandsons! While my children and their families do not live in Norfolk we are still close enough that we can see each other on a somewhat regular basis. Thanks to the age of technology we manage to stay close through facebook , twitter and other social media during the school year. Then there are my pups......meet Ozzie and Benny! They are great company and have been with me almost as long as I have been teaching. My interests outside of school include gardening, reading and good friends.
