Ellen Beene

Hello! My name is Ellen Beene, and I’m excited to be your Life Skills teacher this year. I’ve been involved in special needs work for the better part of 35 years. I worked as a special needs ministry editor for 27 years, developing and editing Bible study curriculum for special needs adults and older teens. In 2012, I moved to North Carolina to help grow Able to Serve, Inc. While there I developed a day program for intellectually and developmentally disabled adults. My responsibilities included developing the curriculum and leading classes. I've been at West Johnston since 2017. I started as an EC teacher assistant and became a teacher in 2020. 

I'm looking forward to seeing you in the classroom on Monday, August 29. We'll work together to make it a great year and make new friends. 

You can reach me by email or by calling 919-934-7333. ext. 6024.
