Jolene Bene

Teacher (Special Ed) - Mountain View

My family and I live nearby in Hackettstown. My husband and I have four boys. We are an active family that enjoys the outdoors; hiking, camping, biking, snowboarding/skiiing, and playing with the dog. I work hard and play hard!

I welcome my students to a new year! I am excited to begin my next journey with a new program this year. I have been in the district in differing capacities since 2010; substitute teacher, Teacher of Autism at Sandshore, and newly residing in Mountiain View for this next calendar year with Fifth Grade. I strive to support the families as well as the students that I work with. I look forward to a productive year! 

Welcome to Mrs. Bene's Classroom Webpage!

Elementary school is always an exciting time for students, their families and our educational staff. With a productive school and home connection, your children will grow in many ways this year. I have worked hard to create a well-rounded program. The main focuses in my program include physical, emotional, social, and academic development. I will work closely with other service providers that interact with my students to infuse the best practices into our daily classroom routines. In the pursuit of your child's education, there may be changes to programming to best support your child.

Experiential learning is a key component to any classroom I run. Imagination is key! I believe that a hands-on approach is conducive to all learning styles. You will find a supportive learning environment in my classroom for all to grow from the support of peers and adults.

I look forward to celebrating everyday successes with your child and you. If you should ever have a question or concern, please contact me.
