Mr. Ben Spencer

 IMPORTANT: On the first day of school, we will meet live on Microsoft Teams, and your work will be posted on Canvas. Please be read to meet in Microsoft teams, and please have Canvas ready for your first assignment.

My name is Ben Spencer and I am a twenty-one year veteran teacher of Cabarrus County Schools. This is my fourth year at Harris Road Middle School. I am National Board Certified and have taught 7th grade Social Studies my entire career. I am also GLEE certified. My assignments will be posted on Canvas throughout the virtual learning process. I use the Remind App for any parents interested in receiving updates by text message. If you're interested in the Remind App, use ONE of the following two codes to sign up for my class. Text either @8kcgk7f to 81010 or @97kfag to 81010. You will receive the same information no matter which code you use. I'm looking forward to a great year!
