Kristen Campbell-Blumhagen (Mrs. CB)
Hello and Welcome! My name is Kristen Campbell-Blumhagen but I'm more commonly called Mrs. CB. I teach chemistry and I have been teaching in Ankeny since 2012. Before I came to Ankeny I taught in Waukee and Mt. Pleasant. I earned my bachelor's degree in biology and science education in 2001 from Iowa State Universerity and earned my Master's in science curriculum and instructions in 2006.
My love for teaching science is in my DNA. I am a third generation science teacher. I love science because I see it in my everyday life. My goal is to help students learn chemistry in their own way, and to help them see that everything around them is science-related. I strive to make my students better people both academically and personally.
In my free time, I love being with my family (especially my husband and two little boys), going to Iowa State sporting events, the movies, running, playing trivia games, and reading. I am also a self proclaimed book nerd and history nerd.
The best time to contact me by email or phone is before school or after school. Email is the most efficient way to reach me. Feel free to contact me at any time, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I may be available at other times by prior arrangement.
I hope you and your student have a successful school year!
