Mrs. Laurie Bennett
Welcome to Second Grade! My name is Laurie Bennett, and I am excited to be your child's teacher. This is my 23nd year in education. I've taught in the Chicago suburbs as well as in Phoenix. I grew up in Illinois, and attended Judson University, where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. Our family moved to Phoenix in 2008, and we have enjoyed exploring the West! After moving to Phoenix, I attended Grand Canyon University where I received my Reading Specialist Endorsement. I LOVE reading, and hope to instill this quality in my students. When I am not at school, I love spending time with my family. My husband and I are blessed with two fantastic grown kids, and an adorable English Bulldog named Daisy Mae. I look forward to working with you this year, as we partner together to make this an amazing school year.
