Mrs. Laura Bengs

Hello and welcome. This is my fifth year teaching at PHS. Prior to my career as a teacher, I worked in a business setting as an Account Executive at a local Advertising agency and completed several internships with media entities and publications. From these experiences, it became very evident to me how important writing and communication are in any career, so I now aim to guide students to develop the writing skills that will guide them to success in their pursuits. 

I am also very thrilled to serve as the Drama Director and Drama Club adviser at PHS. When I am not in the classroom, I can be found rehearsing in the auditorium or hunting for costumes and props for the latest production. 
Due to my extracurricular commitments, the best way to initially contact me is to send me an email. Any additional meetings needed can be arranged by appointment.
