Welcome to 2nd Grade! My name is Melissa Benson and I've been at Prospect Ridge Academy, and taught second grade, since 2011, when the school began. It has been an honor getting to see PRA grow into the great school that it is and to be apart of that growth. As for a little bit about me, I got my Masters in Gifted and Talented Education, in 2016, and it has served me well. I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, paddle boarding, trying fun restaurants, and spending time with family and friends I look forward to working with you and your young learner this next school year as we move into distance learning. I know the start of this year will be different, but hopefully we will be able to all be in the classroom again! My best to you all!
