Teachers should make space for students’ voices and teach them how to connect and shape their communities for the better.” 

Ben’s Story

Why Math 

“As a teacher, I love seeing students break through their initial anxieties about math when they get engaged in a problem. I love hearing how students think about math.”

Professional Experience
