Mrs. Kimberly Adams

Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher

My name is Kim Adams and I am a Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher at Ankeny High School. In my opinion, I have one of the best jobs here at AHS...being able to enjoy kids as they learn, laugh, and enjoy life while learning to cook in Foods, create in Fashion, or problem solve in Teacher Academy definitely constitutes a great job.

I received my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education/Home Economics/Reading from William Penn College in 1989. In may of 2011 I received my Gifted and Talented/Effective Teaching/Professional Development masters degree from Drake University. I started my teaching career in Des Moines in 1989. After spending 10 years in Des Moines, I moved to the Centerville School district where I taught for 4 years. I then moved to Lynnville-Sully where I taught for 3 1/2 years before moving to Ankeny in 2006.

My husband Matt is the Assistant Superintendant for Ankeny schools. We have 3 children, our son works for Tesdell Electric and lives in Ankeny, our oldest daugher is teaching 5th grade at Carlise and our youngest daughter is a juniour at AHS. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors, gardening, cooking, fishing, riding horses and spending time with my family and dogs.
