Hi my name is Laurie Bennett. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with my bachelors in elementary education and completed my masters from Viterbo University. I have been teaching in the Des Moines School District for 21 years. I have taught kindergarten and fourth grade as well as been an instructional coach. I joined the Capitol View team in 2015 as a math and reading interventionist. Working with students who need a little extra help in reading and math is my passion. Seeing kids grow and learn is so rewarding! Outside of school of school I like spending time with my husband and two boys as well as friends and family.
I came to Capitol View in 2013. After graduating from Hoover High School, I attended Iowa State University and Drake University, where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I have been employed with the Des Moines Public Schools for sixteen years.
