We’re excited to announce our newest at-large board member, Audrey Bennett. She brings substantial community leadership as well as classroom experience to our board. We’re excited to have her on the EEN team. Read more about Audrey’s work below, and check out the rest of our board members here.
Audrey Bennett has been deeply involved in public schools and education as a parent, volunteer and teacher for over 20 years . After a successful career as a manager at Microsoft, she pivoted to working in schools through many roles in PTA – starting as a local President, then serving as President of Bellevue Council PTSA and later on as Washington State PTA’s Region 2 Director. She’s also active with other education groups, including The League of Education Voters. Audrey’s work around education policy has focused primarily on equipping advocates with the tools and knowledge they need to become leaders in their own community. When her youngest child departed for college she began work as a classroom teacher, and is now a long-term substitute in the Bellevue School District.
