4th Grade Madison Harjes

Hello families!

I am so excited to work with the families and students in the Ankeny Community School District. I grew up in the Des Moines area and graduated from Grand View University in 2016 with an elementary education and an endorsement in reading. I have been teaching since 2017. All but one of those years have been spent in 4th grade! My favorite part of teaching is getting to build relationships with my students. I believe that my job is to help students find their strengths and help them see the value in learning and growing.

When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my husband and son. We love to get outdoors as much as we can! Some of our favorite hobbies include biking, gardening, and fishing.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns via email or phone call. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your children’s lives!
