Mrs. Tara Myers
K-5 Special Education Teacher
Hello, and welcome to Prairie Trail. My name is Tara Myers, and I am a special education teacher at Prairie Trail Elementary. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with a great staff, students, and families this year. This is my 9th year as a special education teacher in Ankeny. Prior to teaching in Ankeny, I taught special education at Central Elementary with the North Polk School District for two years and at Perry High School for two and a half years. I obtained my undergraduate degree with a major in elementary and special education from Wayne State College, in Wayne, NE and my Master's Degree in MD from Morningside College, in Sioux City. Teaching has always been a passion. It is rewarding to see students progress toward their goals and meet milestones in their learning.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Chris, and my two dogs. I enjoy reading, movies, playing board games, time with friends and family, and shopping. I am also a dance instructor for the youngest kiddos at Showtime Studio in Perry.
Please feel free to contact me at 965-9605 (best times are before 7:30 a.m. or after 3:00 p.m.) or anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is going to be a great year!
