Welcome to 2nd Grade!

My name is Jessica Benser. This is my fourth year teaching at Raymond Ellis Elementary School. I taught 4th grade for the past three years and now will be teaching 2nd! I attended Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL where I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. After I acquired my ESL (English as a Second Language) Endorsement. Currently, I am taking courses to obtain my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and bulldog Barkley. As well as, watching movies, swimming in the pool, and traveling.

Throughout the year, I will update the class website with important information such as upcoming events, volunteer oppportunies, etc. Please feel free to contact me at anytime with questions or concerns you may have. You may contact me by calling the school and leaving me a voicemail at (847) 270-9900 ext. 4530 or by email at jbenser@rlas-116.org. I am looking forward to this journey of success with your child. I truly believe I am blessed to have the best job in the world. Along with your help I know we can get your child on target!


We, the Raymond Ellis community, will prepare and support our students to become lifelong learners and productive citizens.


Succes for all learners
