• Welcome to Dr. Bennett's Classroom:



    I am a staunch disciplinarian who absolutely adores his students.  Infusing a slew of technology, twisted humor, brain-stretching critical thinking, urban rhythms, poetic rhymes, and a host of hands on activities, our class is transformed into five learning matinees per day. We believe in entertaining as we educate. Fun works, but only in a structured and disciplined environment. I believe that parental involvement is the single most valuable asset that a child can have at this level. With that in mind, I am Chestnut Ridge's email bandit.  You give me an email address, and it will be contacted. You email me, and I'll get back to you within one day. I require that parents sign agendas (containing the homework assignments), and everything that I grade and send home. Parents, I will keep you informed. I am looking forward to an awesome year. Your child is MY child. They will be loved while they learn, disciplined when they are wrong, encouraged constantly, and instructed in excellence.

    Please, do not hesitate to contact me at pbennett@ercsd.org

    Grace and peace,

    Paul I. Bennett, Science Instructor
