My name is Jonathan Bennett and I am the Principal at the Breckinridge County Area Technology Center. Previously, I taught 8th grade Science at the Breckinridge County Middle School for 1 year and 9th grade Science at the Breckinridge County High School for 8 and a half years and I have been the BCATC Principal since January 1, 2017. During my time at BCHS, I also coached baseball, girls basketball, and football.

I graduated high school from BCHS in 2002. I then attended Western Kentucky University and earned my Bachelor of Science in Middle Grades Education Science 5-9 in 2007. I was awarded my Masters of Arts in Teacher Leadership from the University of the Cumberlands in 2013 and completed my Rank I in Instructional Leadership - Principal from the University of the Cumberlands in 2015.

I married my beautiful wife, Beth, in 2008. We reside in Hardinsburg, Kentucky with our 3 children; Ava Kate (5), Maggie (3), and Trent (3 months). In my spare time I enjoy playing golf, mowing, and spending time with my family and friends.

It is an absolute pleasure and privilege to serve as the Principal of the Breckinridge County Area Technology Center! Excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better and the BCATC staff works hard every day to maintain a culture of excellence!
