Mr. Pauls

Hello and welcome to Ankeny!

My name is Alex Pauls and I’m excited to serve the Ankeny School District as a Special Education Teacher! I joined Ankeny in 2018. Before Ankeny I taught at the State Training School for Boys (Juvie) in Eldora, IA.

I am educated through the Univeristy of Northern Iowa (UNI) and Morningside College. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my wife, watching the Hawkeyes and the Fighting Irish, exercising, and reading. 

My contract hours are 7:50 A.M. - 3:50 P.M. but I'm often in the building a little before and a little after. If you ever want to get ahold of me feel free to give me a call or send an email. Email is the best way to get ahold of me, however, and I can be reached at

I look forward to this school year and helping all students grow and reach their full potential!
