About Benjamin

Hello! My name is Ben K. and I am presently a student in the Transition to Teaching program at Indiana Wesleyan University. Additionally, I have been a substitute teacher in East Allen County Schools in Fort Wayne Indiana. I left my position as night shift process improvement lead after working at Edys (Nestlé) Ice Cream for 2.5 years.

What I quickly realized after graduation was that I am not passionate about pizza and ice cream. We had a saying at work: “We’re just helping people get fat. It’s just pizza and ice cream, it’s not worth getting hurt over.” I don’t want to spend my life doing something meaningless. To me, children are supremely important and so are their futures. My passion is to help them attain to their highest potential.

My first taste of the joy of teaching came in 2011 while I was fulfilling my practicum teaching requirements in Spain for my undergrad TESOL minor. After I began tutoring Burmese children in the apartment complex next to my own last year, I quickly saw the fire reignited in me. This provided me with the focus I needed in understanding my own passion in life: teaching kids and empowering them to fulfill their potential, to dream and possibly fulfill their dream too.

I've taught English stateside and completed my TESOL practicum in Spain. Returned to school in the fall of 2015 to pursue my Indiana teacher's license for grades K-6. I've worked as a substitute teacher since, most recently finishing the school year at PCA in EACS as a long-term EL sub. This past Spring I also received a TESOL Teacher's Certificate from the University of Notre Dame.
