My name is Benton Fletcher and I've been a Special Education Teacher at Chicago Tech since 2014 and became the Special Education Case Manger since 2017. For my undergraduate studies, I attended Loyola University Chicago where I earned a Bachelors of Science in Biology, and a Bachelors of Arts in Music (vocal performance). I earned my Masters degree in Education Arts in Special Education at National Louis University.
As you may have noticed, I enjoy playing ultimate frisbee! I'm played the sport since my freshman yeah in college, and currently captain a mixed gender team club team here in Chicago (Stackcats), as well as coach Loyola University's woman's ultimate frisbee team (Sirens). I'm also an avid runner, and have raced in several half marathons. My hope is to compete in the Chicago Marathon in the future. Music has also been important to me my entire life and I enjoy singing, listening to, and writing music. Last but certainly not least, I am a huge nerd! Comic books, board games, D&D, video games, Star Trek, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the rings, you name it! I love it, and would love to talk about it! Along with Nick Gutierrez, I help run and after school club fondly called Nerd Club, where we engage in all of those nerdy things that we know and love!
