Michelle Bennett has been involved with cooperative preschools for more than 12 years, as a parent and as a teacher. She has served on the OCP Board for two years as the curriculum chair, taught the first Larks class, and has been a substitute for OCP. Michelle holds a Masters in Elementary Education and has worked in the inner city schools of Washington, DC, and cooperative preschools here in Atlanta. She believes that wonderful things happen for our children when parents and teachers work together for their benefit. Being a member of a cooperative preschool is a special experience she looks forward to sharing with the parents and their children.
Michelle’s son is a current student at OCP in the Larks class this year, and he thinks of OCP as his second home. You can often find him visiting the classrooms and talking with the teachers that have loved and cared for him these past three years. Michelle lives in Candler Park with her son and husband. Michelle enjoys reading, hiking, kickboxing, movies, and Pinterest for great teaching blogs.
