Director of Enrollment (PreK–2)

Laura Maheshwary comes to Bennett Day School after wearing a number of hats in education. She possesses a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and a MFA in Creative Writing from Lesley University. Most recently, Laura served as an education consultant in the Chicagoland area and sat on the board of Park West Cooperative Nursery School. While working at area non-profit, Christopher House, Laura visited Reggio Emilia on a study tour, and became passionate about the Reggio approach. This is one of many aspects that excite her about Bennett Day School. Laura also worked as an education reporter throughout the country documenting what made successful schools excel, while others struggled during the advent of No Child Left Behind. She later transitioned into teaching and then non-profit administration working in public and private schools in Boston, New York, and Chicago. She lives with her husband and two girls who are both Bennett Day School students.
