Ben Lippen Stories

Mr. Dennis Uhlman

Teaches: American Government (CP, Honors, and AP)

Mr. Uhlman is married to Stacey, a fourth-grade teacher in the public schools, and has a one-year-old daughter named Ruth Elizabeth. In his free time, Mr. Uhlman loves reading, being outdoors, and watching the news & all kinds of sports. Most of all, though, he loves spending time with his family. The Uhlmans recently moved to South Carolina from Massachusetts and they are enjoying exploring our Famously Hot city.

What do you love most about Ben Lippen? What I love most about BL is having the chance every day to develop relationships with the wonderful students and faculty. The sense of community at Ben Lippen is very special and I have found it exciting to be part of such a great place. I love trying every day to imperfectly model Christ to the students.

What is your favorite part of teaching American Government? My favorite thing about teaching Government is helping students see God’s redemption and our fallen state through political institutions. There are not many areas where we can see this contrast more clearly. I hope students, by the end of the class, will be better equipped to think biblically about our government and the issues our country faces.

What is one thing most people don’t know about you? I have been a die-hard Elvis Presley fan since the age of three. Several times a year I drag my wife and other friends and family members to watch Elvis impersonators.
