Mrs. Amber Mortenson
Hello! I am Amber Mortenson, kindergarten teacher at Prairie Trail. This is my twelfth year teaching in Ankeny and my third year teaching kindergarten. I have previous experience teaching first through third grade and serving as Literacy Leader. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa and earned my Master’s degree from Drake University. Prior to teaching in Ankeny, I had the opportunity to teach in St. Petersburg, Russia, and Melbourne, Australia. My favorite part of teaching is forming relationships with students and families and encouraging the love of learning.
