TEACHER- SPANISH IV & V
This is going to be a great year! I am looking forward to meeting my new students as well as catching up with all the wonderful students I had the opportunity to get to know in previous years. I enjoy teaching and sharing my love of language, culture, and learning with my students. I plan to challenge all of my students to set personal goals and explore new ways of looking at the world around them. I also hope to instill in them a passion for lifelong learning and a curiosity for learning about and understanding people and cultures different from their own. I am a proud graduate of Ankeny High School and feel blessed to be living and working in such an amazing community of dedicated students, teachers, parents, and other professionals. When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, three sons, and daughter. I also enjoy entertaining family and friends, exercising, attending my kids' activities/events, and dancing.
I have been teaching in Ankeny since 2006. Prior to that I taught at Evanston Township High School in Evanston, IL for 7 years. I have a BA from Central College where I double majored in Cultural Anthropology and Spanish. I also have a Masters from the University of Iowa in Spanish Education and an endorsement in Talented and Gifted Education.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions and/or concerns.
