Meet Mrs. Lone

nullThis is my eleventh year of teaching and my eleventh year at St. Augustin, too. I teach seventh grade Literature and eighth grade Literature and English as well as serve in the administrative office as Lead Teacher. 

I grew up in West Des Moines, Iowa, and attended Sacred Heart School and Dowling Catholic High School. I attended the University of Northern Iowa for my undergraduate education and Morningside College for my Masters Degree.

What I enjoy most about teaching: I love teaching the middle school students.   They are such a fun age to work with because they are independent, kind, funny, and creative.  Every day is different, and there are always challenges, but I couldn’t imagine teaching a more enjoyable age group! 

About my family: I have been married for ten years to my husband, Tim.  We have one son, James, who was born in August 2020. We live in Des Moines.  We both grew up in town, so we enjoy having our families close by. 

What I enjoy doing outside of school:  I love to read and watch TV.  I also enjoy traveling.  During the summer, I like to spend time outdoors or ride my bike.
