My name is Ben Markham and this is my tenth year as an educator and seventh year at Lakes Middle School! I will be teaching two sections of sixth grade Language Arts, Junior Engineering, Design Tech 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 7th-11th this year - more information will be 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 - I completed my bachelor's in Elementary Education in 2010 and completed my Master's Degree last year in Education Technology along with a Certificate in Schoolwide Technology Integration. I love being able to create meaningful interactions between students and technology in the learning process. Over the years I have lived in Montana, Oregon, Washington and Idaho. I have been married to my wife Christy for over sixteen years and we have two wonderful children - Jacob (13 - Lakes 8th Grader!) and Ellie (7). 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 and enjoy historical gaming.
