Greetings, Aspen School District! My name is Deirdre Bennett and I hail from a small town in New England.
Before joining Aspen Elementary School, I lived and taught in many interesting places around the world for over a decade - South Korea, India, China and Serbia. I’ve also taught many grades from Kindergarten all the way to Grade 4. Fun fact: my husband and I met while working together in Belgrade, Serbia!
As a mindful PYP educator I’m passionate about empowering students (and teachers!) by encouraging them to wonder, explore, discover, ask questions while connecting to their own experiences and the world around them.
When I’m not in the classroom, you can find me practicing yoga, snuggled up with a book or exploring the world with my husband, son and two dogs.
I’m thrilled to bring my knowledge of the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) to Aspen as the PYP Coordinator and looking forward to connecting with you!
