Extended Care Grade School Assistant Teacher
Hello, my name is Ben. I'm originally from Pennsylvania, and in the past year I have made the move to Portland to join my brother in the PNW. I graduated from Penn State University in 2016 with a minor in German, thus setting me up for my start at GIS. I have also had the privilege of going to Germany twice, once in 2012 after high school to visit Berlin and Munich, and then in 2015 as a semester study abroad in Marburg.
In my free time I enjoy all things active and/or outdoors, such as skiing Mt. Hood in the winter and biking around the city in the summer. I'm super excited to return to the school this year as a staff member, and I look forward to seeing you in the halls!
