Welcome to Mrs. Benson's 5th Grade!

This is my 10th year teaching at River Ridge! I taught Title I Reading for my first three years. I am excited to continue my love and passion for teaching with my new 5th Graders!

While I am away from my classroom, I love watching baseball, walking, cooking, taking naps, spending time with my family, and reading!

I live in Galena with my husband, Mike, and three of our children, Jordan, Jaycob, and Brynnleah! Our son, Jude will be attending art school in Chicago this fall, and our daughter Kaileah will continue her education at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. We also have one energetic dog, Jack, and one mouse hunting cat, Chester!

I look forward to meeting all of my students and their families!
