Mrs. Sylvia Wineland

Math Teacher

Hello and welcome to my website!  My name is Sylvia Wineland. I started teaching at Ankeny High School in the spring of 2008. 

I grew up in Ames, IA and graduated from Ames High School in 2001.  I went on to further my education at Iowa State University and graduated in May 2006 with a degree in Mathematics. I completed my Masters of School Mathematics at Iowa State University in 2011.

My passion for teaching started in high school with a passion for learning.  This fuels my desire to wake up and come to work each day!  Here at Ankeny we have a great student body and a great staff!  It's an amazing environment to come to each day and learn something new!

Over the course of my journey in Ankeny, I've taught Geometry, Algebra 2, Honors Algebra 2, and Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus.  My goal in each class is to see students succeed in their respective class.  I want students to leave their math class for the day encouraged and challenged to be a life long learner--not just in math, but in life! I am also a student council advisor. 

Beyond my involvement at Ankeny High School, I am passionate about reading and learning about different topics in the world today.  I also am passionate about staying healthy and fit--so I enjoy excerise.  Finally, I love being outdoors--hiking, walking, running, biking, and just looking at scenery. 

I am anxious to get to know you and your child this year!  Thanks for taking the time to visit!  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to e-mail me at Thanks again and have a great day!
