3rd Grade Kayla Scherder

Hello, my name is Kayla Scherder. I have been teaching for over 20 years and in Ankeny Schools since 2008. I started teaching at East Elementary in fifth grade and moved to Westwood to be the Instructional Coach.  After a couple of years, I missed being in the classroom full time and I went back to 3rd grade.  I have been there ever since.

I graduated from North Nodaway R-II High School in Northwest Missouri.  After high school, I attended the University of Missouri – Columbia where I received a BSed in Elementary Education.  My husband and I moved to Arkansas so he could work on his masters and doctorate in Agronomy at the University of Arkansas – Fayetteville.  While we were there, I earned  my MSed in Elementary Education.

My husband Eric and I live in  in Huxley. We have two daughters,  Reese and Rylee. We love to play games, snuggle with our cats and watch movies. Some of my hobbies are reading and  spending time with family and friends.  I am so glad to be a part of the Westwood family!

We believe, achieve, and inspire!
