Welcome to My Page

Mr Gerlemen

Welcome to Central Lyon.  My name is Ben Gerleman and I am currently the high school business teacher as well as a math teacher in the high school.  I am currently in my 8th year at Central Lyon and my 17th year of teaching overall.  This is my 8th year working with the math department and I am in my 4th year as the high school business instructor.  I also coach at Central Lyon as the high school boys' basketball coach and the girls' golf coach.

My wife, Nicole, and I have two children, Mason (8th grade) and Mariah (6th grade).  We have been married for 16 years and have called Rock Rapids our home since 2001.  When I am not teaching or coaching I enjoy spending time with my family doing an assortment of different things.
