Mr. Battaglia

Welcome to my webpage!  My name is Mr. Battaglia and I am an 8th grade Science teacher on team 8-1.  This is my sixth year teaching and my third year at Glenside Middle School. In 8th grade science, we learn about cells, genetics, evolution, ecology, and more!

In December of 2015, I graduated from Benedictine University in Lisle, Illinois with a Bachelor’s of Science (B.S.) degree in Biology. I also received my secondary education licensure. During the Summer of 2018, I graduated from National Louis University with a Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Curriculum and Instruction.  I also have my ELL endorsement through NLU.  I am currently working towards my Master of Art (M.A.) in School Leadership through Concordia University Chicago in order to get my Principal endorsement. 

My wife and I have two dogs, Evie and Daisy, who occupy most of our free time.  I enjoy sports, especially the Cubs and Blackhawks, and love to golf.  I also enjoy camping and anything outdoors!
