Ryan Benson

Welcome to 5th Grade! This is my 5th year teaching in Madera Unified. My first three years were spent in 4th grade. I then moved to 3rd grade for a year, and this year I’m so excited to be teaching 5th grade.

I was born in Santa Clarita, California but raised in Fresno, California. For my high school years I attended Clovis West High School in Fresno. I then moved on to Fresno Pacific University where I earned a bachelor's degree. After earning my bachelor’s degree I went to National University for my teaching credential.  My wife (Andrea) and I, along with our two children Zoe (8 years old) and Grayson (5 years old) live in Clovis. We love spending time in our backyard swimming or playing any sport. 

I’m looking forward to a great year!
