Language and Literature
My name is Benjamin Posluch, and I am thrilled to begin teaching another year of English language arts here at SCCA, my home since 2011. I grew up in Turlock, CA, completed my undergraduate coursework at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, and worked as a substitute teacher and youth group leader for six years before moving to Tulare county.
As an English teacher, I coach my students in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. I love the challenge of providing high-quality content and making learning accessible and fun for students who are already gifted in the language arts as well as students who need some extra help.
I am driven to make school exciting for students. I have found that students who are empowered with the right tools, choices, team, and audience can do remarkable things.
I live in Visalia with my wife, our two children, and miniature schnauzer. In my spare time, I enjoy following professional sports (S.F. Giants and 49ers), playing city league softball, playing with my kids, and reading everything worth reading.
