Hello! My name is Joey Bender and I teach Business Management and Marketing here at Northfield High School. This will be my first year teaching at Northfield High School! I was previously a teacher at West Leadership Academy. I received my undergraduate degree from Metropolitan State University of Denver and am currently in a Masters Program at Adams State for Applied Sport Psychology.
I’m extremely excited to be a nighthawk and to start building relationships and getting down to business of teaching business!
Besides teaching I am the Head Cross Country coach. I’ve coached for 7 years in both high school and college. I’m also excited to get this team up and running and to use my experience to foster of culture of excellence in and out of the classroom at Northfield High School!
I was born in Aurora and went to Grandview High School where I ran cross country and track and field.
I don’t see myself leaving Colorado as there is so much to do and I love taking advantage of the opportunities this beautiful state provides. I love to run, rock climb, hike, fish, be on the top of 14ers, and just about anything outside!
I’m looking forward to a great year of teaching and coaching and couldn’t be more ready to be a part of the Northfield Family!
