About Me

Hello, my name is Ward Bennett. I have been an educator in MPS for 21 years, and have experience in all grades K-8.  I am excited to be returning for my second year as the Performing Arts Teacher at Bancroft!

You could say I have been a performer all my life and that it’s in my blood. As children my brothers and I often created and put on shows for our parents, and my mom frequently said that I was singing before I could talk. I have always had an interest in theater and performed in several plays and musicals throughout high school and college. I have been part of three choirs and I currently lead singing at my church and have performed in some dramatic skits there as well.

I went to school at Minnesota State University-Mankato, and Hamline University in St. Paul. I'm married and have two children ages 14 and 11, and a cat named Hana.
