Meet Ms. Waller

nullI have been teaching for twelve years -- two at Christ the King in Des Moines teaching middle school language arts and ten at St. Augustin. I grew up in Algona, Iowa, and attended Iowa State University where I received my degree in Elementary Education. 

What I enjoy most about teaching:  I'm thrilled to be teaching fourth grade again this year! I've been enjoying getting to know each one of my students. It always touches me when students recall what we've learned together. I love hearing the excitement in my students voices when they have learned something new!

Outside of school, I enjoy: I love to spend time with my four children: Claire, Jack, Isaac, and Noah. Much of our time is spent together at sporting events or watching my daughter perform.  We travel a lot and spend quite a bit of time during the summers at our family's home on Crosslake, Minnesota.
