Bennett, Nancy


Hi—I’m Nancy Bennett, and this is my ninth year at Vista Grande, and my fortieth year in the classroom. I’ve taught English at all high school grade levels in a variety of schools before coming to Arizona: a small country school in the middle of an Indiana cornfield, a parochial school in the Chicago metro area, and a suburban Indianapolis high school. Now I’m happy to be teaching English 11, Advanced Placement Language, and Advanced Placement Literature at Vista.

A voracious reader and true nerd, my favorite subject has always been literature, and I’ve earned a Bachelor’s Degree in English from Franklin College (Indiana), a Master’s in English Education from Indiana University. I've also done Master’s work in English from Butler University. In addition, I’ve received additional study opportunities through grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities at Columbia University, the Folger Shakespeare Library, and the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

I live in Chandler, Arizona, with my husband, a former basketball, golf, and tennis coach and Dean of Students,  and my sweet sweet dog Buddy L. Bennett, and in the spare time I have when not grading papers, I love  reading, walking, and cooking.
