Teacher Librarian Jenny Wirtz

Hello! My name is Jenny Wirtz and I’m the teacher librarian at Ankeny High School. I started my career as a school teacher librarian at the elementary level, first in Newton for 6 years, then 10 years in Ankeny at Westwood and Crocker Elementary. I needed a change and the split of our high schools offered me the perfect opportunity to try out the other end of our K-12 spectrum.  I came to Ankeny High School in 2013. I enjoy high school students because they are figuring out who they are in the world. They are so much fun to visit with and their energy is contagious. I’m counting on them to keep me young. I’m married to Jason and we have two daughters, Natalie and Abby, both AHS graduates!
