Biography

Hello! My name is Amy Palmer. I grew up here on the south side of Des Moines and have traveled back to share my love of education. I teach so I can learn about the world and all of those infinite possibilities that brand new minds bring each and every day. I graduated from Drake University receiving a BA in Special Ed. (5-12) and Art Education (k-12). When I am not in school, I enjoy spending time with my family and being outdoors!
