Mrs. Alana Dunkin
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!
