Hello! My name is Ben Adams and this will be my seventh year teaching. I grew up here in Auburn and graduated from Auburn High School in 2007. I attended Peru State College and graduated in December 2011 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. I completed my Masters of Science in Curriculum and Instruction through Peru State College in March 2018. I also help coach high school baseball for Auburn Public Schools. I enjoy sports, especially watching the Huskers. I also enjoy hunting, fishing, and spending time with my friends, family, and my dog Jax.
