Meet Miss Coon

null

This is my first year teaching and my first year with St. Augustin Catholic School.  I'm very excited to meet all of my Transitional Kindergarteners.

I grew up in Clive, attended Saint Francis of Assisi School, and graduated from Dowling Catholic High School. I attended Iowa State University in Ames and received a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Reading (K-8) and English Language Arts (K-8). 

What I enjoy most about teaching: Although this is an endless list, there are two things that I enjoy most about teaching young students. First, I love getting the opportunity to help children grow into the best versions of themselves. When I teach students, I work to make a positive impact on each of my students. Second, I enjoy getting to share my passion for lifelong learning and helping students obtain a growth-mindset.

What I enjoy outside of school: Outside of school I enjoy reading, traveling, and being active. I also love spending time with my family and trying local restaurants.
