Welcome to Karen Acres!
My name is Amanda Drescher and I am very excited to be your child’s teacher this school year! This is my eighth year as a teacher and my fourth year of teaching kindergarten at Karen Acres Elementary. Before that, I taught preschool for four years at Rolling Green Elementary. I absolutely love teaching kindergarten!
I am from Urbandale (Go J-Hawks!) and graduated from Iowa State University with a B.S. in Early Childhood Special Education and an endorsement in Reading. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, family, and friends, traveling, and shopping at Target!
I believe that open communication and a partnership between home and school is vital for the success of every child, so please don’t hesitate to call or email me if you ever have any questions or concerns.
I am looking forward to a school year of learning, fun, and adventures!
