Mrs. Bechard

Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Bechard

Welcome to the functional life skills program at Benton Elementary.  I have a Masters degree in Special Education and have taught life skills at all levels for many years.  Students in my classroom receive individualized instruction in reading, writing, math and social skills.   I believe in a hands on, multi sensory approach that combines functional skills with academic skills, allowing alternative programming to help best meet the needs of each individual student.   In this way, the students learn new content and are able to show mastery in a variety of different ways. I often touch base with families for a variety of reasons and am always willing to sit down and talk with you, show you what we are doing in the classroom, and help in any way that I can.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need anything or just want to check in. You can reach me at 207-453-4240 or email me at kbechard@msad49.org.
