Ms. Amy Kaven

As as a special education teacher in the district, I am excited to co-teach in the English department.  With 25 years experience in public education, I love my job through and through.  Earning my endorsements in special education, talented and gifted, and coaching have been a big part of my life after getting my Bachelor's in English and Journalism/Mass Communications in 1994.  I was also a Nationally Board Certified teacher from 2004 to 2014.  

I moved to Ankeny recently to become a part of the community in which I teach.  Landscaping, baking, riding my bike, and having family dinners are things I enjoy outside of my profession.  The Iowa State Fair is an event I look forward to all year.  Having resided on a farm for over a decade, I have been a county fair superintendent and lived the 4-H experience with my twins, who are now young adults.
