QUFSD mourns the loss of Mrs. Michelle Bennett.

It is with a very heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of our beloved teacher, Mrs. Michelle Bennett.

Michelle was a pillar of the Queensbury Middle School community for 22 years as an English department chairperson and ELA teacher.

Michelle was invested in the lives of our school community, as a dedicated educator and coach. 

“This is a devastating loss for our community. Michelle cared about each and every one of her students and colleagues. She was passionate about helping children and she truly loved teaching ELA,” said Kyle Gannon, Superintendent of Schools.

“I feel for our staff members, our students, and our athletes who were lucky enough to know her. She has touched thousands of lives over these past 22 years.”

Our thoughts are with Michelle’s family and the Queensbury community at this time.

In difficult times like these, our crisis teams assemble to support all of our students, faculty, and staff. Our counselors, school psychologists, and social workers will be available in our buildings on Monday and going forward to provide assistance to anyone in need. If your child needs support please reach out to your student’s school counselor.
