Building Director (Homeless, Foster, Migrant Coordinator)
Ben Huebner holds a Master’s of Education from University of Missouri-St. Louis, and a B.A. in Business Administration (majors Economics and Financial Analysis, minor Political Science) from Creighton, and is getting his M.B.A. from Washington University in St. Louis. During and after Teach For America, Ben worked at Premier Charter School, first as a math teacher, then as a staff accountant, where he did lots of complicated things with numbers and acronyms (FSA, COBRA, multimillion dollar deals, etc.).
Ben is Kairos' liaison for homeless, migrant, and foster students.
At Kairos, we believe now is the opportune moment to rethink public education. That's why we replace lectures with engaging projects and dictatorial "behavior managers" with 1-1 executive functioning coaches who help students learn how to manage their own schedule and work habits. Kairos students practice navigating real-world choices (such as when, where, how, and with whom to work) within a safe, supportive school environment. Kairos develops students not just into freethinkers, ready to thrive in a modern economy, but self-governing citizens, ready to lead both themselves and their communities.
