Mrs. Lisa Bennett
Special Education Teacher
Hello, my name is Mrs. Bennett and I teach Special Education at Westwood Elementary. I started my teaching career in Ankeny in 1994. Before teaching in Ankeny I was employed by Heartland AEA 11 for five years and taught at the Polk County Youth Shelter. Before that I taught one year at St. Paul's Lutheran School. I received my Elementary Education degree in 1989 from University of Northern Iowa. Later, I received my Multicategorical Resource Endorsement for special education from Grandview College.
I enjoy spending my free time with my family and attending the Drake Men's Basketball games.
