Faculty Who Care
Benjamin Morris Lipschutz
Instructor, Business Administration
I am focused not only on teaching business, but also the pedagogy of teaching itself - especially in a higher education setting. My primary focus is the paradigm shift from teacher focused learning to student centered learning and ensuring I am able to meet the students where they are and bring them to the level they need to be.
I grew up in Dover, PA and went to school in York, whereupon I joined the military straight out of high school. I was trained as a Korean Linguist at DLI and an Air Traffic Controller, and have lived in numerous different states and countries during my time in service. Upon being medically retired due to injury, I wound moving to Enola with my wife. We have been married for 9 years now and have 3 children (Ella 9, Claira 5, and Ezra 3). We also house rescued animals in the form 3 cats, 3 dogs (Great Dane ponies really) and 2 large beehives. I enjoy reading, computer games, being outdoors, community service, and traveling. We are planning an extended trip to Japan next year to visit our exchange daughter who just graduated college!
I am a leader of youth as much an instructor of content. Anyone can teach a subject, but a professional embodies their knowledge and acts in a manner befitting one in a position of power. I will conduct myself so as to bring credit to the profession of which I am a part through selfless service, loyalty, honor, and personal courage. I will ensure that I never use my position of power and influence for personal gain or profit. I will facilitate the personal growth of my students by being a guide for their moral character, a collaborative partner for their inquisitive nature, and a director for their learning. I can only accomplish this by being well versed in my content areas, communicating consistently and clearly, and through proficiency of instructional methods.
