Hey! My name is Ben Tashner. This is my 5th year teaching "officially" at the middle school. I started my experience here as a clinical student with Mrs. Jehn (6th Math) in 2011, and completed my student teaching with Ms. Beld (6th Social Studies) in 2012. I graduated with my bachelors in 2013 from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse with a regular education major and special education minor. I will be starting my masters at UW-L this summer. I am also involved in coaching Cross Country, a co-leader to WEB, and the advisor for student council. 
 
When I am not at school, I am spending my time with my son who was born in August of 2017 and my beautiful wife. I enjoy being outdoors. I am usually hiking, kayaking or just going for walks as a family. I am from a small town in WI near Dubuque, IA. I am a Hawkeyes fan, even if my homeroom students all cheer for Wisconsin. Go Hawks! :D
