Music Specialist

Lauren McNutt - Team Lead Bio

I have been teaching Music at the “Best School in McKinney” since 2012. I love teaching all the students at Bennett Elementary to love and experience music. I received a Bachelor of Science in Music Education and a Bachelor of Arts in Vocal Performance from the University of Arkansas Fort Smith in 2005. I graduated with my Masters in School Counseling in 2016. My husband and I were college sweethearts and married in 2005. Together we have 3 beautiful children; Addilyn, Brock, and Emileigh. In my spare time, I like to sing, craft, repurpose/refinish furniture, watch movies, and spend time with my family. I can’t wait to spend another year at Bennett working with our students to love and incorporate music into their lives.
