Ms. Jane Lamfers

Spanish Teacher


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.
