Fall 2018 Election
President Elect Nominee Josh Hildebrand
Leadership Council Nominee Chris Roberts
I attended Ankeny High School in the 90's where I took part in four sports and lived in the gym whenever I could. Once my time was done in Ankeny, I made the choice to attend ISU and get a degree in business because that is where the money is. Within one semester I was reminded that high level math and most things dealing with written language are not my strong points. At that time, I decided to pursue what I love instead of what would pay well. I enrolled in the EXSP program at Iowa State and received my BS in 2001 after student teaching in Ames and Ankeny. If you are not sure what EXSP stands for, it stands for Exercise and Sports Science.
My first and only teaching job has been in Waukee. When I started in 2004, Waukee was made up of three elementary buildings and we had four PE teachers. At this time, Waukee has 8 elementary buildings with the 9th opening in 2019 and the 10th to open in 2021. The PE staff has grown from 4 teachers to 12 teachers. I have the privilege of being called the "Old One", as I have been around the longest.
