Mrs. Hope Whitlock

Hi there! Welcome to 3rd grade! 

My name is Hope Whitlock and I am a third year teacher here at Bennett Ranch. I can't believe it was only three years ago that we opened this school as a community!

Some of you may remember me as Ms. Sama... I got married this summer! 

I am a transplant to Colorado, and am orginally from New York. I lived on the east coast of the United States for most of my life but am so happy I made the journey out west. Being out in Colorado has taught me a lot... it is where I got my teaching license and my Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of Northern Colorado. 

While I love being out here, being away from my family (who still live in New York) can be difficult. However, I have made great connections here at Bennett Ranch and consider the people I have met here to be my "second" family. When I'm not at school, I love to go for hikes with my dog, workout, swim, and find new adventures outdoors. I also love to travel whenever I can. 

I am so excited to see what this school year has in store of us! I can already see how much our students from last year have grown to be successful and responsible members of the Bennett Ranch community!
