Mr. Ben Mulhern
Here we are! 2021-22!
I'm Mr. Mulhern (he/him/his), and I am the 8th grade Language Arts teacher, as well as the teacher of the brand new Graphic Novels elective class! I am also the coordinator for our after school EDL program. This is my 3rd year at Global Arts Plus working alongside this amazing team.
This year, we will be covering a variety of topics. We will create a history of our personal reading journeys, practice strategies for research, check out some dystopian texts and make our way through some contemporary classics. We’ll write our own personal narratives, craft both opinion and literary essays, look at the facets of investigative journalism and create both infographics and TED Talks on topics that we find interesting. I will consistently be on the lookout for the best resources to get interesting texts in students' hands.
I live in St. Paul with my wife Emily and our two cats, Q-Tip (11) and Mo (7). When I’m not teaching I love to write, read, play the drums, and work on film and theatre projects.
I'm always happy to connect with families. Drop me a line if you have any questions, comments or concerns. The best way to reach me is by email, but I am also available to schedule a phone call as needed.
