2nd Grade Teacher

Hi, my name is Amanda Hoeppner.  I am a Second Grade Teacher at Prairie Trail Elementary. I have been teaching Second Grade in Ankeny Community School District since 2010. I have a Masters degree in Teaching from Drake University and a Bachelor’s degree from Buena Vista University in Fitness and Sports Management. I have my Reading endorsement and am currently working on my Gifted and Talented endorsement through Drake University. I have a strong passion for teaching and it is my goal to help all students grow and become successful learners. I believe in endless possibilities for students and when working together we can help students prepare for a lifetime of success. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, and being outside.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little about me. I am looking forward to another great year at Prairie Trail Elementary!  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
