My name is Carson Bender. I am in my second year as the 8th Grade Social Studies Teacher at EVMS. I love the East Helena School District and the community. I am originally from Deer Lodge, MT and attended the University of Montana in Missoula. At the University of Montana I received a BA degree in Political Science and History as well as a Teaching Endorsment in Secondary Comprehensive Social Sciences. I came to East Helena because my wife (Mrs. Bender-4th Grade teacher at Radley Elementary) told me that it was the greatest district in the state and she really enjoyed working here.
Teaching Social Studies is a passion of mine. I enjoy working with kids every day and I love the subjects I teach.
