Julie Bennett, M.Ed. has taught for over 25 years in both private and public schools. Introduced to Froebel in 2002, she sat on the original board of the Froebel Foundation USA. Stepping away from the board in 2004 for job and family obligations, Julie never lost sight of the pure sense of Froebelian teaching. Julie currently teaches grades 5/6 in a private school, trains homeschool parents, and delivers a yearly lecture on Froebel to university education students. She's excited to join the Froebel team in Grand Rapids to share ways of integrating Froebel methodology in various content areas.
