Dr. Ben visiting with students.

Our new principal Dr. Larry Ben came to Grand View School from Arkansas. He has been in the education field for 36 years. He previously taught at Lowrey, Tahlequah, and several Northwest Arkansas schools. Dr. Ben went into the field of education originally for coaching. He said, “that coaching is teaching.” Now an administrator Dr. Ben said, "the first day of school was a learning experience and the people here were hard working and nice." Some of the activities that he was looking forward to this school year were the robotics team and to see how students achieve in academics. One of his favorite memories was when he was on a field trip a kid came up to him and said it was his best day ever. That is one thing Dr. Ben enjoys throughout his career is seeing students making memories.
