Mr. Ben Christensen

6th grade science- G Team


I teach 6th grade science at Prairie Ridge on the G Team.   After graduating from Wartburg College in the spring of 1998, I found myself teaching middle school mathematics in Clear Lake.  Ankeny called two years later and I have called Ankeny home since 2000.   Katie (my wife) teaches 7th grade literacy here in Ankeny.  Katie and I spend most of our time chauffeuring our son Charlie, and daughter Gwyneth to activities.  In my spare time I enjoy watching the Hawkeyes, Raiders, and Cubs.  If I'm not upset about a loss, I find time to ride my bike or rough it in the wilderness with our air-conditioned camper.
