HI! My name is Lindie Truitt and I am currently enjoying my 1st year as an Instructional Coach at Karen Acres and I am celebrating my Sweet 16 as an educator in the Urbandale Community School District! My experiences in Urbandale include one year as a title one kindergarten teacher, nine years as a classroom kindergarten teacher at Olmsted Elementary, and 2 years as a first grade teacher at Jensen Elementary, and 4 years as a Facilitator of Curriculum and Professional Learning at the district level. I am involved in the Urbandale Continuous Improvement and Leadership Team and I work closely with the Karen Acres Building Leadership Team.
I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa… GO PANTHERS! … and as a past cheerleader at UNI I am pretty passionate about my purple! At UNI, I graduated with a K-6 Elementary Education Degree, a minor in K-8 English/Language Arts, and an endorsement in K-8 Reading. I am also proud to say that I am a Drake University Graduate too! I completed my degree in the Pre K-12 , Masters of Ed Leadership program in 2015 and I am beyond excited to continue to bring learning to our district.
I have an amazing husband, Luke and together we enjoy two beautiful boys. Tate is a seventh grader and Will is a Fourth Grader, and both keep us busy riding bikes, creating projects, and playing outside all we can!
