My name is Erin Munoz and I am the Head Start associate in the Humpty Dumpty classroom. My fiancé and I have 3 kids; Mia, 18, Tysone, 15 and Ashton, 9. I have been with the preschool program for 6 and a half years. I look forward to meeting your child and watching them grow throughout the year.
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.
Hi, my name is Martha Wiemers and I am the Early Childhood Special Education teacher in the Down by the Bay classroom! A little bit about me, I have my Master’s in Special Education from Portland State University. This is my second year teaching preschool with DMPS and fifth year teaching special education. This summer I eloped in Oregon, and I live with my husband Jeff and two dogs, Whittaker and Dexter in Des Moines. When I’m not teaching, I love spending time with my three little nieces, camping, hiking, and cheering on the Hawkeyes and the Portland Trailblazers! I am so excited for all the learning and growth that will take place this year.
