My name is Sean Barry and I am incredibly excited to be joining the staff at Ankeny High School. Teaching has always been a passion of mine and after recieving my first masters degree from Purdue University in curriculum and instruction I started teaching at a relatively small high school in Indiana. Ten years, another masters, a PhD, and a lot of learning later I find myself filling the role of new kid on the block once again. With family all over the great state of Iowa it was easy to select where I wanted to take the next step in my teaching career. The diverse student body, great facilities, wonderful community, and amazing educators made Ankeny the perfect landing spot. I will be teaching English 10, Yearbook, and Journalism this year and look forward to the opportunity to learn from all of the incredilbe young people who happen to find their way into our classroom.
Please feel free to reach out to me at anytime.
