Mrs. Lori Schaeffer
7th Grade Literacy Teacher
My name is Lori Schaeffer. This is my 25th year teaching at Parkview. The time has just flown by! This year I am excited about teaching literacy on the 7th grade Platinum team. I am a graduate of Roland- Story high school, Iowa State University, and received my Masters in Education from Viterbo University. I’ve also obtained a reading endorsement and middle school endorsement.
My husband and I keep busy with our family which includes our children, John, daughter-in-law Jordynn, Connor, and Kate, and our bulldog, Benson. When I am not keeping up with family activities, I enjoy shopping, reading, and decorating my home.
I feel very blessed to teach in the Ankeny School District. It has grown so much since I began teaching here in 1994. Putting students first has always been the number one priority. My students may not always remember everything I have taught them, but my hope is they will always remember how I made them feel special.
Enjoy your middle school child!
