My name's Ben- originally from Minnesota but moved to Chicago to become a middle school special education teacher after graduating from college in 2008 (majored in Spanish and Int'l Studies). I'm currently living in Rio on a Fulbright grant. When I'm not giving class at the public federal university here, I keep busy running, swimming, and enjoying the relaxed pace of life here. Don't have the slightest problem spending the day at the beach. Love language and love travel. Any questions you have for me, just me know!
