Hello! My name is Ainslee McConnell and I am a first-grade teacher at Bennett Elementary. This is my eighth year teaching at Bennett. My favorite thing about working in education is spending my days with creative children! Their joy and genuine curiosity brighten every day! I love to learn with children and see how they grow as problem solvers, readers, and independent thinkers. When I am not at work, I enjoy traveling, spending time with family and friends, and reading mystery novels!
