Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Benjamin A. McDonald

I love being a teacher! My job is to inspire students in life. You can find me with a smile every morning, ready to teach and have fun. I moved here from Michigan looking for a teaching opportunity. I swam at the college level for 4 years and several years after. I have two master’s degrees in Special Education and Education Leadership. "I am always learning," and will continue to find new and innovative ways to help students learn. I have a passion for nature and being outdoors. When I am not in the classroom you can find me hiking with my dog in the mountains of Flagstaff. 

“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’” — Mary Anne Radmacher
