Meet Your Teacher
"No significant learning can occur without a significant relationship." -James Comer
Hi! My name is Ms. Bentley, and I am very excited to be your teacher. I am looking forward to this amazing journey we get to embark on together! I can't wait to learn all about you, but first I'll tell you a little about me.
I am Oklahoma born-and-raised. I come from a large family, with an older sister and three younger brothers. My mom has taught elementary school in the Moore Public Schools district for over twenty years. As long as I can remember, I wanted to be a teacher. I loved visiting my mom's classroom, where I would (kindly) force my younger brothers to play school. :) I guess you could say I am a product of Moore Public Schools since I've belonged to the district from my elementary school days at Sky Ranch to graduating from Westmoore High School.
I attended the University of Central Oklahoma and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education with a focus in Early Childhood. I taught second grade for one year at Southgate-Rippetoe Elementary before staying home with my son, Ryland. Now I am back to doing what I love at a school I genuinely love. I taught first grade during my first year back, then moved to second grade. This will be my second year teaching second grade at Bryant Elementary, and I have found my home! I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to teach another year alongside the amazing teachers and staff at Bryant Elementary. Go Blazers!
