Mrs. Kelly Chalupa

7th Grade Special Education - 7A

Welcome to Prairie Ridge Middle School!

My name is Kelly Chalupa, and I have the opportunity to provide special education services to students within the general education setting.  My goal is to encourage all students to work towards their potential, providing compassion, encouragement, and excitement as we grow!  Working with my general education team, I strive to provide engaging and meaningful learning scenarios to develop communication and social skills.  I hope to inspire confident readers, writers, and speakers, both inside and outside of Prairie Ridge!

I have been teaching in Ankeny since 2016, coming to the district with 12 previous years of experience in middle school.  I look forward to working with a stellar team of educators, parents, and members of our community.  Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns: or 515-965-9705.
