Mrs. Tami Kuhfal

I’m Tami Kuhfal.  I’m excited to be teaching Special Education at Ankeny High School.  I look forward to challenging students to reach their full potential. 


I received my Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies and Elementary Education from San Diego State University.  I completed my Master of Science in Special Education from Wayne State College in Nebraska. My Strategist II endorsement is from Grandview University.  I developed and created the STEAM program and Makerspace for my prior school. I also implemented a Coding and Robotics Club.


I am originally from a suburb near Los Angeles, California.  I then moved to St. Louis, Missouri for two years. Following that I lived in a suburb near Detroit, Michigan for one year.  I relocated to Denver, Colorado for two and one-half years. I was in rural northeast Nebraska for 24 years. 


My husband is a Lutheran Pastor.  We have two daughters. My oldest daughter lives with her husband in Des Moines. They are both computer engineers for Principal Financial.  My youngest daughter is married and lives in Joplin, Missouri. She works in as human resource and customer service representative for Car Credit.  Her husband is a mechanical engineer for TAMKO Roofing.


I love to travel to other states and countries.  I am passionate about lunar and space exploration. I have been to Cape Canaveral for two educator conferences and saw a launch of the Falcon 5 Space X payload to the ISS.
