2021 - 2022 Eighth Grade Last Updated: 8/2/2021 11:22 AM

Hello! I’m Ben Vanden Bergh and I teach 7th grade Social Studies. I previously taught in Cobb County, and I am so excited to make the move to now work in the community where I live. I am also thrilled to be a new member of the Falcon team! This will be my 23rd year teaching and I couldn’t think of a better place to be! I earned my bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Middle Grades Education from Western Carolina University and my master’s degree in Technology in Education from Lesley University. I also have my gifted endorsement.

Over the course of the last 22 years, I’ve taught students from 3rd to 8th grade, but I have continued to stay in 7th grade for the last 15 years because I LOVE it! I have a true passion for social studies, world geography, and a dedication to helping students see the world with a more international perspective. I am originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin, and yes, I’m a die-hard Packer fan! When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children, traveling, watching sports, gardening, and fishing. I can’t wait to meet all of the new 7th graders in my classes this year!
