Hello my name is Mari Benson. I am one of the Resource teachers here at Blake Primary. I was born and raised in Tempe, Arizona. I moved to Parker about 11 years ago. I graduated with my Bachelors in Early Childhood from Ashford University. I also have my Master’s degree in Special Education Cross-Categorical from Grand Canyon University. I am certified to teach K-12 Special Education and I have a full endorsement in ELL. I have 3 children and I enjoy spending time with my family traveling or just hanging out by the pool when the weather permits.
