My name is Janet Henderson and I am the teacher in the Humpty Dumpty room at Taylor Early Learning Center. I have been working with young children for many years in a variety of ways including being a nanny, a childcare provider, a director of childcare and a preschool teacher. I am married and have 2 adult children. We have 2 Labradors that keep me on my toes! My husband and I are Iowa State fans and spend the winter driving to Ames to enjoy many sports activities especially basketball and volleyball. We also enjoy doing home improvement, watching cooking shows and taking walks.
My name is DyAnn (Ms.DyDy) and I am Ms. Janet’s teacher associate. I have been working with the Des Moines Public Schools forever in early childhood classrooms. Before that I did home daycare for 18 years. I have been married for 45 years to my high school sweetheart and we have two adult children: Our son Scott works in Newton. Our daughter BrieAnn is a high school biology teacher. Her husband Jeramie is a firefighter for Des Moines. Together they have three beautiful daughters that keep us very busy with different sports. I also work at the Indianola YMCA. I am looking forward to having your child in our classroom this year!!
