My name is Emily Dickison. I graduated from Iowa State University in 2010 with a degree in Communication Studies. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, going for a walk or bike ride, and crafting. Cheers to a new school year!
Hi, my name is Jodi Harrell, and I am beginning my 5th school year with Des Moines Public Schools! I enjoy being part of the Early Childhood Department where I serve as an Early Childhood Social Worker and Mental Health Consultant. I graduated from Grandview University for my undergraduate degree and the University of Iowa for my master’s degree. I have also been trained in Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and I often consult on how to implement PCIT principles in the preschool classroom as well as in the home. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my step-granddaughter, friends, and family; and I love to travel whenever I can.
