Two ConVal teachers to lead forum Saturday
Two ConVal High School teachers are going to share their wonder of teaching and teenagers on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at the Dublin Public Library. Learn how they connect with students, help them to find their voice and inspire them to be better people.
Through building communities, creating collaborative leaning environments and asking the big questions, Eric Bowman and Ben Putnam are on a mission to change the way students think about their potential, school, and the world they live in. It’s not about innovative teaching practice. It’s about being present, it’s about caring and it’s about being honest and having fun. Please join us for a conversational presentation and sharing about teaching, learning and community building.
Eric Bowman is a member of the Social Studies Department. He’s been teaching at ConVal for 18 years. He has also taught at Franklin Pierce University, and teaches at the Phillips Exeter Academy Summer School program.
Ben Putnam is head of the Visual and Performing Arts Department and has been teaching at ConVal for 19 years, the last nine at ConVal. Putnam teaches at the Phillips Exeter Summer program and has taught at the NH Institute of Art.
