Benjamin "Pete" Allred teaches science at Roots High. He feels strongly about education and community. Pete enjoys the outdoors (and he's not just saying that; he actually gets out and does stuff in the mountains year-round), ping pong, soccer, and being a fan of pretty much anything nerdy (especially Lord of the Rings and Avatar the Last Airbender). He loves discussing literature and ideas with people. Lately, he has been learning to understand and appreciate "artsy things" and is very proud of his recently painted "Bob Ross"-style painting of a mountain. Pete would like to learn how to weld if he can find a mentor that is willing to teach him for free.
