Meet Mrs. Lone

This is my ninth year of teaching and my ninth year at St. Augustin, too. I teach 7th grade Literature and 8th 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 eight years to my husband, Tim.  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.
