My name is Rachel Bennett. This will be my fourth year at Phillips teaching 1st grade. Prior to Phillips I taught at Findley Elementary teaching K-1 Interventions. My husband, Matt, daughter, Willow and pup, Cooper, live in Urbandale. I enjoy spending time with my family as much as possible, and long walks down every aisle at Target 🙂 I’m looking forward to another great and rigorous year here at Phillips!
I have worked ten years as a Phillips’ first grade teacher. I love my job! I am married and we have three children, Max 22, Ben 19, and Emma 16. I am currently working on my Master’s in Literacy at Drake University. In my free time I love to garden, go on long walks with our dog, and read.
