Teacher Librarian 

Hi! I am Mrs. Dunkin, the Digital Learning Teacher at Westwood Elementary. I have degrees in Early Childhood and Elementary Education as well as an endorsement in School Library Media Studies from the University of Northern Iowa.  I have been a teacher librarian in the Ankeny School District since 2009.  In that time, I have taught at Terrace, East, and Westwood Elementary.  I have a passion for teaching elementary students to become independent users of the library and lifelong learners of technology. 

My husband and I live in Ankeny.  We have two young boys.  Noah is four years old and Carson is two  I have had so much fun with them both this summer.  We also have two golden retrievers, Buddy and Zoey.  I am very excited for an amazing school year!
