My Name is Tyinnia L. Bennett a proud 4th grade teacher at John T. Pirie. I have been apart of the Pirie staff for a year and a half. I have enjoyed educating the future generation. I have found my time at Pirie School to be both challenging and rewarding. I came to Pirie School as a new teacher, the staff was so encouraging and supportive. I was introduced to the CAPE program by a wonderful music teacher named Robin DaSilva. The CAPE program gave my students the opportunity to learn about music while using the literacy frameworks to enhance their learning. This year I have been given the opportunity again to partake in the excitement of working with CAPE. I look forward to a fun filled year of working with Monica Skylas and Ellen Tritschler as we incorporate art into the literacy frameworks to brighten the minds of my 4th grade class.
