Mrs. Tricia Chodur
Special Education Teacher
Hi, my name is Tricia Chodur and I teach special education at Westwood Elementary.
I started my teaching career with Ankeny Community Schools in 2002. Before teaching in Ankeny, I taught special education for five years in Mason City. I graduated from Moorhead State University in 1997 with degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education, Behavior Disorders and a minor in mathematics. During the summer of 2009, I received my Instructional Strategist II: Behavior Disorders/Learning Disabilities Endorsement through Iowa State University. I am currently pursuing the Master's of Arts in Teaching Professional Educator degree through Morningside College and will complete the course work in the Spring of 2020.
I enjoy spending time with my husband, Dan, and our two sons, Ethan and Eric. I enjoy spending time outside biking with my family and walking our dog Cole.
