Mr. Benjamin Brandwein
Happy 2018-2019 school year! I am excited to be part of the Round Lake Area Schools team! I graduated from Illinois State University in 2015 with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I recently completed my Master's in Special Education and English as a Second Language at National-Louis University. Currently, I am a special education resource teacher for wonderful third and fourth graders at Ellis Elementary. It is my belief that every child has something that makes them creative, unique, and amazing. My passion is finding those things that inspire a child and incorporating them into my lessons to make their learning as relatable as possible. I am looking forward to a great rest of the year!
Every other Wednesday, my groups have time with a therapy dog named Chip. This is a great opportunity for students to read together to a non-judgemental ear. Over the course of this current semester, I have seen wonderful progress in students' reading confidence because they read to Chip!
