My Name is Bryan Engnell and this is my 9th year working as a Special Education Teacher and my 1st year as IEP Case Manager at Southland College Prep.
I firmly believe that ALL students can learn and ALL students should have the opportunity for higher education.
I started my journey into the field of special education at Illinois State University, and made a decision to come closer to home to earn my bachelor's degree at Trinity Christian College. As a student that struggled heavily with reading and writing, I had to work very hard on my studies, and stay focused on my goals. I strive to instill the same work ethic into each student I come across in my profession. I have seen firsthand how hard work and determination can change a person, and I hope to leave that impression on those that I work with.
At Southland, I have had the opportunity to become well versed in all curriculum Southland has to offer. I have taught classes at the instructional level including Spanish 1, 2, and 3, Algebra, Geometry, US History, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Environmental Science. I also have experience as a co-teacher in nearly all classes offered at Southland. I feel that my versatility in each subject Southland has to offer is highly beneficial for the students that I work with every day.
I am looking forward to working with all families in my new position and excited about seeing our students in person again!
