Short Bio:

Hello, I’m Barbara DeHaven Bennett. While I’m not a Colorado native , I have spent most of my life in this beautiful state.  I attended Bear Creek High School, Metropolitan State University of Denver and the University of Colorado at Denver.   I have two Bachelor’s degrees (Mathematics and Psychology) and a Master’s Degree in Secondary Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Secondary Mathematics.

Why I Love Working at Mathnasium:

For twenty-nine years, I had the privilege of teaching high school math in Denver.   During that time, I worked with a wonderfully diverse group of students that came from over forty different countries and spoke over sixty languages.   There is nothing like the sparkle in a child’s eye when they have that “aha” moment of understanding.  Mathnasium provides both the students and me with the opportunity to experience that “aha” moment everyday.

Favorite Number:

Any number that is a palindrome - I love the symmetry!


I enjoy golf, skiing, reading, scuba diving, traveling and of course, math! In recent years I’ve had many wonderful travel opportunities including a tour of London and Scotland, and scuba diving trips to Mexico, Grand Cayman, and Hawaii. My favorite was the London/Scotland trip which included dinner in the Tower of London, a private viewing of the Crown Jewels and a round of golf at both St. Andrews and Gleneagles.

Our Mathnasium Mission

Teach children math so they understand it, master it, and love it. Math can change their lives, and they can change the world.

What I love about Mathnasium is the ability to teach problem-solving skills and make math make sense, while also making a student smile.
