About Mr. Benson
This will be my fifth year working at Kinard and my fourth year in the P.E. department. I have enjoyed incorporating my interest in health and nutrition, my experience as an athlete, and my passion for working with youth into my teaching. I grew up in Glenwood Springs, Colorado and enjoyed competing in basketball, soccer, football, and track throughout high school. I spent my four years of college at CSU on a Track and Field Scholarship where I was able to travel around the US competing in the High, Long and Triple Jump. I continue my love for the sport by coaching Track and Field as well as boys basketball at Kinard. My beautiful wife Amanda is also a teacher, and teaches 4th grade in the Loveland School District. We have been happily married now for four years. Fishing, biking, hiking, rafting, four wheeling, snowmobiling, and almost anything outdoors are activities I enjoy filling my free time with, especially if they are with my two-year-old Golden Retriever, Jack. I really enjoy living here in Fort Collins.
