KurtWoolner

Media Specialist

My name is Kurt Woolner and I have been at Bennett Elementary for seven years now as the Media Specialist (computer teacher).  I'm always amazed at the growth students make in this area from Kindergarten to 5th grade, and how we can help change students' perception of computers from simply being a toy to being a powerful and versatile tool.

Teaching is a second career for me, having come from a business management background.  I returned to school to earn my teaching license in 2009, after which I taught 4th grade at Laurel Elementary.  As much as I enjoyed the classroom environment, this role allows me to work with all the students in the building as well as supporting staff members with the ever changing world of technology.
