Mr. Ben York

  • I am going into my 8th year teaching 8th and 6th grade Science here at Paul Kinder Middle School. I am the Science Club Advisor, Boys Head Basketball Coach and Girls Intramural Basketball Coach.
    Teaching is my true calling. Having worked in the business world for a number of years before becoming a teacher, I feel I am able to bring a unique perspective to the teaching environment. I enjoy coming to work everyday having the opportunity to make a difference in a young person's life. My ultimate goal is to leave my students with, not only, a greater understanding of the natural world around them, but with a greater sense of community and the understanding that they can do anything they want to in this world, as long as they are willing to work hard for it.

    My availability:

    Morning time: Monday, Tuesday, and Friday (7:30) 

    Afternoon time: Monday - Thursday (until 4:00pm)
    Afternoon times will be adjusted during Basketball & Intramurals Season (Nov.-Feb.) 

    If you would like to contact me my plan period is (9:14-10:00am)
