Mr. Brandt Carlson


Hello! My name is Brandt Carlson and I teach Physical Education and Health at Ankeny High School. This is my fourth year in the district.  My family (wife Nicky, sons Dillon and Hayden, daughters Addie and Myra) and I moved to Ankeny in 2016.    

I am originally from Aurelia, IA and graduated from Northwestern College in 1996. Following college I worked as a personal trainer in the Des Moines area and began coaching 10th grade boys basketball at Urbandale High School.  I realized quickly that I enjoyed being a part of a great school district and decided to get my teaching degree.  In 2002 I graduated from Simpson College with my teaching endorsement in Physical Education and Health.  For eleven years I was the assistant men's basketball coach and Kinesiology professor at Northwestern College.  In April of 2016 I was hired to be the head boys basketball coach at Ankeny (Hawks) and teacher at Prairie Ridge Middle School.  In the fall of 2018 I was transferred to AHS.  I am excited to be working with this great staff and administration.  

Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns.
