Welcome to Benton Grade School

Hello My Name Is...

Mr. Brian Blades


I am a Special Education teacher in the 5-8 Middle School of Benton #47. I have been a classroom teacher since 2006. I am excited to be a part of this school district.  

I have a wonderful family, my wife and three young children. Aside from teaching, I have always been a youth coach for several of Benton's youth sports programs. My favorite sport to coach is football. I enjoy working with children and am looking forward to a great year at Benton #47.

When trying to reach me during the year, please e-mail me at, call the school office and leave a message (618-438-4011), or send a letter with your child. I will respond as soon as possible.

Let's have a great year!

Mr. Brian Blades
