AELP Kristin Melcher

I am excited to support students through the Ankeny Extended Learning Program (AELP)!

I began my teaching career in Des Moines, where I taught math, fifth grade, and first grade.  In 2015 I began teaching at Northeast Elementary in Ankeny and moved to Prairie Ridge Middle School in 2018.  Besides teaching and learning, I enjoy reading, baking, exploring new places, spending time with my family outdoors, and playing board and card games.


B.S.  Elementary Education and Mathematical Sciences – University of Iowa

Masters in Education – University of Northern Iowa

Endorsements:  K-6 Elementary, PK-12 Talented and Gifted, K-8 Mathematics, 5-12 Mathematics
