Ms. Jane Kennedy

ELL (English Language Learners) Teacher for grades 6-12

Welcome to our Ankeny schools!
I am honored to work with our district’s secondary English Learners (ELs).  This is my eighth year working with ELs and I have taught in Ankeny since 1992.  I have taught Reading, Language Arts and Social Studies.   I am currently teaching 6th to 12th grade ELs at the following secondary buildings: Parkview, Northview, Southview, Ankeny High School and Ankeny Centennial High School.

Iowa is a wonderful place to live, but I have also lived many other places, including Virginia, Georgia, Indiana, New Jersey and New York City.  My B.A. is from Earlham College, my M.A. is from the University of Iowa and my ESL endorsement is from Iowa State University.  As a child, I lived in Geneva, Switzerland, where I went to school in French, and more recently I have traveled to Peru and Ecuador.  My interest in people from around the world started when I was in elementary school and continues to be a passion today.  

The best way to reach me is through email:

I travel between five buildings, and my schedule varies each day.
