Hello my name is Ann Wagener and I am in the Down By The Bay room at Mitchell. I first started teaching in DMPS in 1991 and then moved to my home state of Minnesota where I taught for many years. I am excited to e all the way back to Des Moines where I began. I have 2 kiddos Izzy (21) who goes to UNI and Zach (13) who is in 7th grade in Waukee. I also have an old dog named Lily. When I am not hanging with my crew, I love to read, watch movies, garden, cook and shop for shoes!!! I am excited for an awesome year at Mitchell.
Hi, my name is Heather Werning and I will be the Head Start teacher in your child’s classroom this school year. The 2019-20 will be my 11th year as a teacher with Des Moines Public Schools and there is no doubt that teaching is my passion. I love the energy that the preschoolers bring into our classroom on a daily basis and the pure love and excitement for school that they have. It amazing to watch how much learning takes place in each and every preschooler throughout our school year together.
I graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and spent my first ten years with Des Moines Public Schools teaching in the Shared Vision Preschool classroom at Moulton Elementary. I am married to my high school sweetheart and a proud mother of two amazing kiddos who are six and three. Together we enjoy spending time outdoors doing anything from hiking, swimming, to fishing. I am so excited to meet each of you and work with you and your child this year.
