Mr. David Bentz

Hello, my name is David Bentz (Coach Bentz) and I will be teaching Physical Education and Health for both 7th and 8th Grade for the 2022-2023 school year at Dutch Fork Middle School.  I graduated from Spring Arbor University in the Spring of 2014 with a secondary teaching degree in Physical Education and Social Studies. I moved to Columbia, South Carolina in 2017.  I enjoy being active and I love spending time with family in the great outdoors.  Some of the sports that I enjoy are football, basketball, baseball, golf, and running.  


It is our goal at DFMS that we can lead our students to live a healthy and active lifestyle!  We will have a diverse curriculum through different sports, fitness activities, and health content with the hope that each student will find something he or she truly enjoys.  We want all of our students to improve their fitness and learn the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle! We will be using Google Classroom for all assignments.  Please email me if you have any questions or concerns at or you can call me at (803) 476-4941.
