Hello, Ms. Little here! I graduated from Carlisle High School in 2008 and went on to become a Viking at Grand View University. I graduated from GV in 2012 with a degree in Elementary Education and endorsements in K-8 Reading and Special Education. I am currently teaching 3rd grade Special Education at Moulton! This is my 3rd year teaching at Moulton!

I believe every student can learn. Just not on the same day, or in the same way.  I will take the students where they are currently academically and behaviorally, find how they learn best, and work hard to ensure they have success.  Building a strong relationship with your student will be my top priority.  All students deserve the right to a clean slate every day and every time they walk into my classroom. I believe in strong and open communication between parents and teachers. “It's a parents enthusiasm, support and involvement that inspire children to do their best; and a teacher's ability to teach what they need to learn. Together we can achieve wonderful things.”  I promise to give my very all to teach, inspire, motivate, and encourage your child.

In my spare time I enjoy weight lifting, fishing, kayaking, and this Fall I will participate in my first hunting season.

Hi!  I joined the Mouton Staff in 2004 and am currently a special education teacher for 5th grade. I have a lot of pride in our school and believe that we are up to great things!  I enjoy the daily challenge of helping students reach their potential.  I believe that every student can learn, make progress, and be successful in the classroom.

Growing up in Des Moines, I graduated from Roosevelt High School (99), and earned my B.A. from Simpson College (03).

When not in school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, John, and our kids, Amanda and Tessa.

Hello! I Graduated from Grand View University in December of 1994 with a BA in Elementary Education. In 1998 I concluded my endorsements in Special Education (Instructional Strategist 1) and Reading. I am in the process of completing my masters in Leadership at Buena Vista University. In 2013 I joined the Moulton staff. I believe that every student can be successful in their academics, every student is special, and every student belongs.
