Benjamin Barbour

High School History and Government Teacher

I am a 10th and 11th grade history and government teacher in Fairview, Pennsylvania. I taught middle school English for two years, and I served as a high school librarian for three years. I hold a BA in political science from Boston University, an MA in library science from the University of Pittsburgh, and a MS in secondary education from Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pennsylvania.

I’m interested in civics education and the way in which we teach our students to become engaged and active citizens, particularly in our highly polarized political environment.
