Ms. Nancy Bakke
Hello! I am honored to be teaching at Ankeny Centennial High School. I am a 1991 graduate of Minot State University in North Dakota, where I earned my B.S.Ed. I earned my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2005. In 1992, I accepted my first teaching position in Waynesville, Missouri, and I have taught in a variety of places ever since: The Netherlands, Hawaii, Virginia, and Iowa. My favorite activities include reading, boating, and spending time with my family: my daughter, Sydney (a senior at the University of Iowa), my daughter and son-in-law, Kendra and Joe, and my grandson, James.
Most of my electronic communication with students is completed through Google Classroom. I share all handouts, requirements, and calendars on that site. It is a great way to reach students immediately, and it also cuts down on paper usage.
I am looking forward to a great year. As is always the case, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
