Hello, my name is Joseph Bennett and I am a Financial Math and Business Math teacher at Pearl River High School. I also coach Football and Powerlifting at Pearl River High. I have taught at Pearl River since October 2015. I have a degree in Education from Nicholls State University and I am certified in Physical Education, Health, and Business. I also graduated from Pearl River High School in 2010.
When I went to college I was undecided on what I wanted to do as a career. I changed majors numerous times before I finally decided that Education was the right path for me, and I am glad I did. My teaching philosophy is fairly simple; I believe that when a student finishes my class, they should leave more prepared for life, both financially and maturity wise, than when they started my class, to ensure that the future citizens of our area are productive and contributing members of society.
I was born and raised in Pearl River. I went to and graduated from Pearl River High. I have faith in every child that comes through Pearl River because I believe in what we do at Pearl River and I believe in the children that we teach, and I will do everything in my power to ensure that every child I teach or coach goes on to be the best that they can be, socially and professionally. When all is said and done, this is my home, and I will do whatever it takes to ensure the children will be prepared to face any challenge the real world will throw at them after graduating.
