Mike Stracco is an English Teacher who has been in the classroom for 38 years, 34 of them at Benet Academy in west suburban Lisle.
His student fan base is huge.
Victoria Wojciechowski , a senior at Benet, entered Mr. Stracco’s name for teacher of the month consideration and with it a laundry list of why he deserves the recognition. She says he is encouraging and understanding and keen on having his students excel.
Mr. Stracco’s class room is interesting in and of itself. Busy with things hanging from the ceiling, walls plastered with colorful pictures and interesting art work, a table full of cookies and candies and cake.
