Mrs. Dana Bennett

Greetings!  My name is Dana Bennett. The students refer to me as "Mrs. Bennett".  I am excited to be your child's teacher this year! I will be teaching with Cindy Takach,  "Mrs. Takach", this year and we are determined to make this a year full of fun and learning.

A little about me:  While we are originally from Wisconsin, my husband Brett.  I have two children, a son and a daughter. Beau  graduated from Clemson with a degree in Chemical Engineering and Freya is at Coastal Carolina studying Marine Science and Math.  I have a Bachelors degree in early childhood exceptional educational needs and a Masters in Divergent Learning.  Certified in both early childhood regular and special education, I have been teaching in the public school system for 15 years. Additionally, I taught preschool children in family childcare for 5 years and adult educators in the area of preschool students with special needs for 6 years.  Inclusion in Early Childhood Education has been my passion for approximately 23 years. Last year I was awarded the CEC Special Educator of the Year award for the state of South Carolina.

Parents and family are an important part of every child's team and I am sure that together we can make this an amazing year of learning and growth for your child.
