Benjamin Franklin And Me

Home     My Favorite Reading    For Our Teachers     About Me     Where Will Ben Be   





I have had the great pleasure of passing information on to students in elementary, middle, high school and college courses. I have spoken historical society's, genealogical groups, library sessions,  at historical reenactments and also community groups.

   I portray Benjamin Franklin in the first person, I feel I present him as I see him, a simple man with many layers, a wise man, with a wicked sense of humor, an intelligent man, always seeking simple solutions to problems. His many writings have given us a picture of an incredible individual. How ever todays average person only see's him as the man who flew a kite in a thunder storm or is on the $100 bill. I would like to change that perception.
