Ben Mettling

Hello My Name Is...

Ben Mettling

My name is Ben Mettling, and I will be teaching 5th grade this year . I grew up in east central Minnesota.  I spent my first seven years of teaching there in 1st, 3rd, and 4th grade classrooms.  I moved to Alaska in 2014 when I took a job teaching 6th grade in the northwest arctic village of Selawik.  In my five years there I taught 6th grade, 3rd grade, and the past two years I taught K-12 physical education.
I like to stay active, both indoors and outside.  I grew up hunting and fishing, and that continues  to be a big part of my life.  I also like to run, ride my bike, hike, and cross country ski outside.  Playing basktball, yoga, swimming, and lifting weights are some of the ways I stay active indoors.
I am excited to be here and am looking forward to a good year.
