Ms. Jane Lamfers
I graduated from Dordt College with a BA in Spanish and Secondary Education in 1991. I studied in Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain for four summers and earned my MA in Spanish literature in 2000 through the University of Northern Iowa. I've completed my MA+30 hours through continued studies and varied service projects in Spain, Mexico, and Honduras.
In 2001 I started teaching at Ankeny High School. I currently teach Spanish III & Spanish IV for DMACC credit. I also taught other secondary levels including Spanish II & V for DMACC credit. I also taught 4th & 5th grade Spanish when Ankeny had it's elementary program, which will gradually be reintroduced to our curriculum. I've traveled abroad with students for varied service projects and learning opportunities.
I have always enjoyed travel as a means to learn more about the culture and people of Spanish-speaking countries. I encourage all students at AHS to participate in one of the many travel and exchange possibilities available, not just in the area of Spanish.
