Hello, I’m Benjamin Dums…..
I teach students who crave listening and learning about new and exciting concepts, yet struggle to understand where they come from.
I coach athletes who yearn for and love sports and the challenges they provide, yet have a strong distaste for the heartbreak and pain that are sometimes associated with them.
I show students how to turn confusion into solutions, one problem at a time.
I remind them that making mistakes is only part of the learning process.
I try to convey to them that life is one great big math problem!!
I was the recipient of the “Walmart Teacher of the Year Award” in 2007.
My athletes earned me “2012 Ridge & Valley Coach of the Year” in the sport of Boys Track & Field.
I was voted by the student body “2014-15 Wauzeka-Steuben Teacher of the Year” my very first year at Wauzeka-Steuben School District.
When I’m not at school teaching, coaching or mentoring our community’s youth, I can be found bow hunting, watching documentaries of all kinds, or coaching my own children in sports that they enjoy.
I enjoy spending my time traveling to tropical locations, spending time on my back deck, or camping and fishing north of HWY 29.
If you are dying to know more about me, here are 5 things you may enjoy…
I am a Grammy Award Winning Singer…….in my shower!!!!
I despise doing the laundry….
Tomato juice grosses me out, but I love eating Chili!!
I will try to grill ANYTHING!!!!
I will listen to any music from Bieber to ZZ Top, but No Country Please…..
