Meet Mrs. Ali Coppola 

This is my fifteenth year as the Guidance Counselor at St. Augustin School.  I'm originally from Guthrie Center, Iowa and attended Simpson College for my undergraduate degree. I received my Master of Science in Education from Drake University.

What I enjoy most about teaching: I love interacting with the students, seeing the excitement in their eyes each day, hearing their stories, and helping them solve their problems.

What I’ve learned as a teacher: I’ve learned that after becoming a parent myself, I try to remember that every student is someone’s child. Every student is someone’s brightest star.

About my family: I’ve been married to my husband, Cary, for 15 years. We have three children: Carter, Brynn and Lia.  We also have a labradoodle named Desi.

Outside of school I enjoy: I like to bake and find new ideas for decorating, cooking or crafting on Pinterest. I love boating, traveling, and spending time with my family.
