A new, fresh face on our PACE roster, Ben is a visual artist and musician. He graduated with a BFA from University of Louisiana at Lafayette and loves being able to help students make connections between different subjects and topics of discussion through the arts. A painter, illustrator, and musician, Ben’s favorite lesson is one of connecting art to outer space. He was fascinated by how much the students knew about the surrounding universe and admired how much they were willing to learn about things they could not see. Ben’s favorite part about teaching for PACE is that he is able to travel around Lafayette Parish, visiting different schools and experiencing how schools in the same community vary in ways of teaching.
