Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science and Technology educator leaves job after 22 years for his call to teach

Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science and Technology teacher Ben Schepens was looking to make a difference. For more than two decades, Schepens had made a career working in the computer software field, but despite his success, something was missing.

“When I would go home most days after work it was just an average day,” Schepens said. “But when I was mentoring and tutoring people at the company about software, I found out myself to be in a better mood.”
