Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Amy Halstead. I teach fourth grade at Ashland Ridge Elementary. I earned my Bachelor's degree from the University Of Northern Iowa with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in Mathematics. I began teaching in the Ankeny School District in 2008. Before moving to Ankeny, I lived in Sioux Falls, South Dakota where I taught Title 1 math and reading, thrid grade and in a 3/4 combination classroom. I began my teaching career in Lone Tree, Iowa where I spent two years teaching in both a third and fourth grade classroom. I enjoy teaching because I like hearing all the new ideas and creativity students bring to the classroom. When I am not teaching I love spending time with my husband Scott and our three boys, Jaden, Kael and Bennett. We enjoy spending lots of time outside. I also enjoy watching Iowa Hawkeye football and basketball. Go Hawks!
