Miss Melissa Dagel
Hello! I'm the teacher librarian at Prairie Ridge Middle School. I have the privilege of helping our students learn library and information literacy skills while co-teaching in many different classrooms.
I have been with the Ankeny Community School District since 2008. I am a graduate of Morningside College with a degree in English Literature and Criticism, and the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Elementary Education with endorsements as a K-12 Teacher Librarian, K-8 English/Language Arts, and K-8 Social Studies. I received my Master's from the University of Northern Iowa in School Library Studies in December of 2012.
I enjoy working with your students each day and helping them become better readers and responsible users of technology. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
