Description

Jeffrey Benson has worked in almost every school context in his 35 years of experience in education: as a teacher in elementary, middle and high schools; as an instructor in undergraduate and graduate programs; and as an administrator in day and residential schools. He has studied and worked side by side with national leaders in the fields of special education, learning theory, trauma and addiction, school reform, adult development and conflict resolution. He has been a consultant to public and private schools, mentored teachers and principals in varied school settings and has written on many school-based issues. The core of Jeffrey Benson’s work is in understanding how people learn—the starting point for everything that schools should do.
