Mr. Benda

I grew up in Orland Hills, Illinois and attended Victor J. Andrew High School where I graduated in 2013. I then decided to go to Moraine Valley Community College for one year before transferring to Eastern Illinois University. I graduated from Eastern in Fall 2018 with a B.A. in Social Science Education. While at Eastern I met my Fiancé, Stephani. I started teaching in 2019 at Donovan and quickly realized how great this community is. I hope I can help make a positive impact on my students and assist them in becoming active members of the community.
