6th Grade Literacy (Team J)
Hello! My name is Hollie Banks and I have been teaching since 2011. I am originally from Missouri where I grew up and graduated from Northwest Missouri State University with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Deaf Studies. I have also received a masters in Teacher Effectiveness and Professional Development and my Reading Endorsement at Drake University. It has been such a great experience to teach in the Ankeny School District, and love the time I share here. I really enjoy working with my students and their families to help create the best year possible.
To help every student succeed using differentiated instruction and help guide them to become lifetime learners by leading as an example and continuing my education. I want my students to embrace their uniqueness and remember that they have something wonderful and creative to bring to this world.
