Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Nick Covington
Hello! My name is Nick Covington, this will be my fourth year of teaching here at AHS, and I will be teaching World and AP European History as well as sponsoring the National Honor Society. I am a 2004 Ankeny High School graduate, so I feel excited and privileged to be back alongside some of the same teachers that inspired me to take my own journey into education. After Ankeny, I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2009 with a B.A. in History. At UNI I had the opportunity to study abroad for a semester in Krakow, Poland as well as complete my student teaching in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Over the summer I enjoyed watching my 1-year old nephew; catching up on personal reading and Netflix; participating in the Ankeny Workforce Development Internship Program (alongside Mr. Griffith, Mr. Chasse, and Mrs. Wadle); attending education conferences in Iowa City and Chicago; and moving with my wife from the north side of Des Moines to Slater, IA, where we now live!
I’m looking forward to another positive and productive year motivating AHS students to challenge themselves, grow, and find personal success.
