Mr. Terry Bentz


My name is Terry Bentz.  I have 4 children and enjoy watching them play sports and participate in their favorite activities.  We moved to the Smithville School District in order for them to receive a terrific education and to be near the lake because bass fishing is my favorite hobby. 

I have been an instructor of special education services since 2012, when I began teaching in the Savannah School District.  I have been coaching football and teaching special education at Smithville High School since 2016.  My love of teaching revolves around helping our studens and athletes to find their passions by exploring their talents.

I enjoy teaching science classes and coaching defensive line for our high school football team.  I will be a 9th grade warrior time teacher and I am BUILDING STRONG!  GO WARRIORS!!!
