Meet Ms Bennett: I grew up in Springfield, Illinois. From elementary school I knew I wanted to be a physical education teacher. I participated in varsity athletics at my high school including tennis, volleyball, basketball and track. I have over 20 years as a physical education teacher and 25 years as an aquatic swimming and water safety instructor and continue to love being around the water.
