My name is Donna Kunkel, and I am the associate in your child’s classroom. I have been employed at Mitchell since 2015 and with the Des Moines Public Schools since 2012. My education includes a BA from both UNI and Upper Iowa University. I have two children of my own, and enjoy working with youth at the YMCA. I love helping kids learn and watching them have fun!
Hello. My name is Jessica Parsons, and I am a TLC Instructional Coach. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Northern Iowa and have my Master’s in Educational Administration from Iowa State University. I have been working in early childhood for 14 years and absolutely love working with preschool students and their families. I hope you are eager for the wonderful experiences your child will have in preschool and for the growth you will see them make throughout the year. As an instructional coach, I have the opportunity to visit many classrooms and meet many students and families. If you see me at your child’s school please say hello. I look forward to working with you this school year!
