Hello and welcome to my webpage. I am Kevin Andrews and I am excited to be joining the Special Education team at Ankeny High School and also returning to my home state of Iowa. Prior to joining the AHS staff I taught Family and Consumer Sciences in Harrisburg, SD. Before finding my calling into the education field I held positions as an insurance agent, retail manager, non-profit organization director, life insurance claims representative, and sports coach.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Acccounting, Finance, and Management from Southwest Minnesota State University; Masters of Education in Teaching from the University of Sioux Falls; Talented and Gifted endorsement from Buena Vista University; and am currently working toward my Special Education BD/LD Endoresment. I am also the 10th grade volleyball coach for the Hawkette Volleyball program under the direction of Dave Whims and Sam Sheldon.
My wife, Kelly, and I have a 18 month old daughter, Kinley, who is a bundle of joy in our household. Some things I like to do in my free time are DIY house projects, reading, playing volleyball and basketball, and being with my family.
Some of my favorite quotes are:
"Your value comes from who you are, not from what you do."
"Don't let anyone steal your joy"
"You fuel your heart with six things: what you watch, what you read, what you listen to, who you surround yourself with, how you talk to yourself, and what you visualize"
