Letter from the Principal

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We are very excited to be starting our school year in the new Intermediate School.  It is a beautiful building that we hope you all come check out during our Back to School Night.

First and foremost, I want to express how honored and excited I am to be the Bennett Intermediate School Principal.  I came to Bennett last year to serve as the Dean of Students at Bennett Elementary.   Since I arrived, I have been blown away by the support of students, families, the community, and staff.  Bennett Elementary definitely is the PLACE TO BE!  

A little about myself—I am originally from Iowa and moved to Colorado to attend Colorado State University 13 years ago.  I fell in love with Colorado and coming from a small rural community in the Midwest, I knew this was where I wanted to put down roots.  My husband and three children have been part of the I-70 corridor for 10 years now.  For the past 9 years, before I came to Bennett, I was a CTE teacher on the I-70 corridor.  My passion has always been educating individuals in any capacity, ranging from horseback riding lessons, teaching Career and Technical Education, and Agricultural Extension Education. I am excited for the opportunities ahead and feel privileged to be a Bennett TIGER!

Our goal this year is to build a positive and welcoming culture in the Intermediate school. This includes increasing communication between the school, parents, and the community and increasing participation in our school activities and events. Tiger Tracks will be sent out on a monthly basis; along with a principal’s newsletter. Information will also be posted on our website with All Calls sent out as needed for reminders.

If you ever have questions, concerns, or suggestions throughout the year, please do not hesitate to reach out. 

It's a great day to be a TIGER!
