Hi, I'm Ben!

Since starting to homeschool his daughters in 2012, Ben founded the Green Arts Co-op and leads a forest school meet-up in Central Park. A child of two painter art teachers, Ben has brought his love for the natural world, math, music, fine and dramatic arts into a variety of teaching situations. He is an avid novice birder.
