Hi everyone, I’m Ben. I’m a 2020 graduate of Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, with a degree in History and Geography. I grew up on a farm in a small town in Weare, New Hampshire. I’ve worked in education since I was in high school, and I’m excited to take the next steps down that path. Looking forward to working with and getting to meet you!!
What about the residency are you most looking forward to?
I'm so excited to become a member of an educational community in San Francisco! I've always valued a strong community, both to celebrate the good and for solidarity during the bad. I hope to be able to build that community in the classrooms and schools I work in and provide the best possible environment for my students to learn in.
Did you have a teacher who made a lasting impression on you?
He took a genuine interest in my life and helped during difficult moments, while also adapting the lesson plans to best suit our classroom's needs.
