Mrs. McInnis
My name is Rachel McInnis and I am a Special Education teacher for students in the Functional Life Skills program at Benton Elementary School.  

Each day, I work alongside our dedicated ed techs to deliver instruction and carry out academic and functional goals. I believe that each student is a valuable member of our classroom and school community. We strive daily for our students to become more and more independent. We encourage peer relationships and address social skills throughout each day, as well as through explicit teaching. We celebrate successes and welcome challenges.

This is my 12th year in special education. After graduating from UMF in December 2004 with a Bachelor of Science in Community Health Education, I became an ed tech for Falmouth Public Schools. It was there that I fell in love with special education. I received my Masters of Science in Special Education in 2008 and continued my career in Falmouth as a special education teacher for students with multiple disabilities. After 9 years in Falmouth, I became a resource room teacher for MSAD 54. After 2 years in the resource room, I realized my passion was in working with children with multiple disabilities. So here I am at MSAD 49!

I can be reached at rmcinnis@msad49.org or through the school office 207-453-4240.
