Our teachers are our heroes! Every week we will be highlighting a different teacher on our website and finding out fun and interesting facts about them. Our fourth teacher is none other than Lakeview's  Teacher of the Year Lander Bennett!


Grade: 4th


School: Lakeview Elementary School

 

Number of Years in Education: 18


Number of Years in D50: 12

 

When did you realize you wanted to be a teacher?: I realized I wanted to be a teacher when I turned my playhouse in our backyard into a schoolhouse and lined up all of my dolls to teach them. 


Hobbies: Running, gardening, traveling 

 
If I wasn't teaching I would probably be: An artist
 
What song is currently playing in your car?: Something by Aerosmith. 

Favorite movie: Raising Arizona


What advice would you give a person considering the teaching profession?:  I would tell someone to keep in mind the big picture when it comes to children (and adults). You don't know what is going on in their lives. I would also advise everyone to have a stress release, a vise, like exercise or yoga. 


I am a #TeacherHero because: I care!
