Benjamin Haynie

High School Chemistry

Benjamin Haynie was born in Shreveport, LA and raised in Dallas, TX.​ Tired of hotter climates and ready for some snow, after earning his undergrad degree in chemistry, Ben migrated north to New Hampshire and earned his master's degree in biochemistry from UNH. Ben loves getting students to ask questions and helping them learn how to discover the answers. He is passionate about how all things are connected as part of complex systems and he enjoys getting his students to see the many amazing things happening all around us. With this passion for learning, Ben enjoys botany, cooking, woodworking, sewing, brewing, gardening, hiking, camping, and discovering new hobbies.
