My name is Janet Henderson. I have been with the district for 12 years and have been teaching preschool for 9 years. I love working with children and enjoy seeing how each child grows and learns throughout the year. My husband’s name is Corey. He owns a towing company along with some other family members. My daughter Rachel is a freshman at the University of Iowa. My son David is a senior at Van Meter High School. I love dogs and have a black lab named Carrie. My family and I are big fans of ISU basketball and have season tickets so we are very driving to Ames throughout the fall and winter for all the games.
My name is DyAnn (DyDy) Oxford and I am Ms. Jessica’s teacher associate. I have been working with the Des Moines Public Schools for 17 years in early childhood classrooms. Before that I did home daycare for 18 years. I have been married for 39 years to my high school sweetheart and we have two children, three grand daughters, and a dog named Trixie. Our son Scott is a sub-contractor for Mediacom. Our daughter BrieAnn is a high school biology teacher. Her husband Jeramie is a firefighter for Des Moines. Together they have three beautiful daughters, all under the age of 9. I also work at the South Suburban YMCA on Army Post Road. If you are ever there, please look for me and say hi!
