Seven years of experience as a public high school teacher, CS degree from MIT, previously a software developer
Ben is among the most high-impact educators I have had the pleasure of knowing. He has an exceptional ability to breakdown highly complex concepts into manageable and coherent pieces, while creating a genuine sense of student ownership and discovery throughout the process. Outside the classroom, Ben has played a leadership role in the assessment and revision of our curricula, a weighty task that he has performed with passion, competence, and professionalism. I highly recommend Ben as a timely example of a teacher who has expertly learned to leverage the transformative power of education for the success of students from diverse cultures.
