My name is Ben Markham and this is my sixth year teaching at Lakes Magnet Middle School and ninth year in the profession. I will be teaching two sections of sixth grade Language Arts, Junior Engineering, and Robotics this year. We will be doing some amazing things this year and I am looking forward to getting started!
Heads Up - We will be attending Trail Creek the week of October 22nd-26th this year - more information coming to you during the first weeks of school.
The classroom blog - Blogroom 104 - will have the most up to date information for you, so please check that link and follow the blog!
Parents - Please feel free contact me with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the year. I am eager to answer questions or help with any issues.
About Me - This is my tenth year in the profession after graduating from Whitworth University. I am currently finishing my Masters at Boise State University in Educational Technology with a focus on technology integration. Over the years I have lived in Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. I have been married to my wife Christy for over fourteen years and we have two wonderful children - Jacob (12 - Lakes 7th Grader!) and Ellie (6). We enjoy the outdoors - camping, hiking, and playing in nature. In my free time, I can often be found reading a book or playing with my kids in the great outdoors. I am also a baseball and history nut.
