Mr. Englehart's Classroom Website for the 10th grade of the Wheaton South Tigers!!!!!!

I'd like to start by welcoming you all and giving  you a little bit of background information about myself. I have been to five colleges, coming back to Benedictine for the last time, because I had found my passion and calling in special education.  The other schools I attended were for baseball scholarships, as I've played at the college, minor and semi-pro level.  I know dicipline.  I know how to give it 110 percent in order to work together for the results we want. We want your students to be the best they can possibly be, right? .  That is why my philosphy is "high expectations equals high results." This is the way I will teach and run all of my 10th grade special education classes here at Wheaton Warrenville South.  I have been here 2 years and I am looking forward to this one!


I also take the time to really develop a rapport with your kids and see them as my students- no one else's.  Thats why you can be assured they will be in good hands.  I also love to work with the parents because we are a PARTNER when it comes to your child.  I value your input and and ideas that you may have since parents are the ones who are around the child the most.


I believe in a happy, yet controlled environment. I have an established class plan but do not believe in yelling or screaming to get my point across.  Therefore, I will take time just getting to talk to your child before class, after, or  even after school.  We are all in this together and I want it to feel that way.  I know not everyone learns them same either so we will have MANY hands-on activities that will stimulate all levels and learning types to create a balanced educational program.


Last but definitely not least, I want to take this time to thank all of you for the trust you have put in me regarding your child.  With that said, I will take care of them as if they are one of my own, treat them how  I would like to be treated, practice good morals, and behavior plans outside of acedemics.  I do not just picture the academic side of your child, but rather an entire being with a social life, hobbies, interests, and more that I am ready to roll up into one fun year to create an experience for your child that will last a lifetime.
