Mrs. Laura Liechti

Special Education Teacher

Hello! I'm Laura Liechti and I am the special education co-teacher for 6th Platinum.  Previously, I co-taught 4th & 5th graders at Prairie Trail.  I started teaching in Ankeny in 2014. Prior to that, I taught in Des Moines for 11 years at both the elementary and middle school levels. I obtained my bachelor's degree from Iowa State University in the fields of elementary and special education and my Master of Science in Education degree in Teacher Effectiveness and Professional Development through Drake University.

My goal, as an educator, is to be able to differentiate my instruction in order to meet the needs of all learners and understand how each one of them learns best.   I love watching my students grow as learners by thinking and problem-solving.  I look forward to setting and achieving goals with them!  

When I am not teaching, you will find me spending time with my family and friends, going camping, and watching my kids play soccer, volleyball and basketball.  I enjoy reading, digital scrapbooking and doing crafts. My husband, Seth, & I have 3 children - Emma, Owen & Sophia.  As a family, we especially enjoy doing things outdoors together. 

I am looking forward to having a great year here at Parkview!
