Ashley Falls School, Vicky Beauchane, Health Aide Tech

This month we would like to honor Vicky Beauchane, our Ashley Falls Health Tech!  We continue to see and feel, the impact of Covid on our students and our community, and Beth is on the front lines of handling every one of the cases associated with Ashley Falls.  It is not always easy to make a phone call to a family with news related to Covid symptoms and the required steps for testing and quarantining, but she handles it effortlessly and with grace, professionalism, and dedication to our students and their health and safety!  She is diligent in, calm, and always willing to go the extra mile to support our families during a challenging time and we couldn't be prouder to work with her!  The front office of any school is always busy!  In addition to handling all things health-related, she is a dynamic front office teammate, oftentimes working to support students and families that drop in, answering phones, and supporting teachers and staff.  This month we are honored to recognize Vicky as our classified staff member of the month!
