Miss Chelsey Gooding
Special Education Teacher
Hello, my name is Miss Gooding. I began teaching special education in Ankeny in 2018. Prior to that I taught fourth grade in Ankeny since 2012. Growing up I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and help my students develop the same love for learning that my past teachers instilled in me. I graduated from Iowa State University in 2012 with my BS in Elementary Education. I have endorsements in the areas of math and reading. I received my masters degree from Drake University in 2015 and attended Drake University for my Instructional Strategist II: LD/BD and Instructional Strategist II: ID endorsements. I grew up in West Des Moines, Iowa and that is where my parents and siblings still reside. I visit there often to see them and spend time with my nephews and my niece. In my free time I enjoy reading, exercising, and spending time with my family, friends, and my dog. I also enjoy volunteering with local pet rescues.
You can contact me by email or phone between the hours of 7:40 am and 3:40 pm.
