Aric feels blessed to be joining the Ben Franklin Academy staff and community. He looks forward to meeting everyone and contributing to the legacy of such a great school. Aric is a Colorado native and is very proud of that fact, as he was raised and currently lives in Littleton. He has been married for 15 years to Teresa who is also an educator and they have three amazing kids: Octavia is going into seventh grade, Peyton into fifth grade and Noah into 4-year-old Preschool. When he is not working with students, his own kids keep him busy with violin, soccer, basketball, choir, robotics, etc.
This school year will mark his twenty-second year in education. Aric has had wonderful opportunities to be at a very wide variety of schools in his professional career. He has been a teacher for 10 years and an administrator for 11 years. He has a unique understanding of education as he has been at all levels of the K-12 continuum. In addition to being a teacher and administrator, Aric has also been a coach, club sponsor and mentor to thousands of students. He has a strong belief in the development of the whole child and that every single child is important. He looks forward to building those critical, positive and genuine relationships with all the students as they journey through Ben Franklin Academy.
