Foreign Language Austin Elder


My name is Mr. Elder and I teach students in French 1 and French 2 at Northview Middle School. This 2021-2022 school year will be my first year at Northview Middle School. It’s an honor and a pleasure to teach in the Ankeny community. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Iowa State University and studied French at Centre International d’Antibes in France. My goal is to share and foster growth in world language and to collaborate as a community of learners. Outside of Northview, I like to read books, visit coffee houses, and spend time with friends. I also enjoy helping with the performing arts and percussionists in the district.

I look forward to getting to know you all and I welcome you to reach out to me if you need anything. My email is and work phone is 515-965-9700 ext. 1711.
