Preschool Teacher, Developmental Therapist
Ben attended Hanover College and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Theological Studies which helped him realize that his true passion and calling was working with children. Ben went on to earn a Master of Science in Education from Indiana University. He currently splits his time leading the preschool, seeing kids in First Steps, and doing community outreach. His past experiences include teaching Early Childhood at Virginia Tech’s Child Development Center for Learning and Research and in an inclusive special needs preschool classroom in Ohio. Ben has been working with All Kids Can since the summer of 2014 after moving back to the area with his wife, Lindsay. He believes happiness and empathy for others are essential elements of the growing child. When Ben isn’t working, you can often find him on Hanover College’s campus reliving his college days playing Ultimate Frisbee with the undergraduates.
