Hello Park Avenue Families and Welcome to 2nd Grade! I am so looking forward to working with your family this school year!
This will be my eighth year of teaching and my third year of teaching 2nd grade! I earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Family Studies from Grand View University and a Master of Science in Teaching degree from Drake University. In my free time, I enjoy going to concerts, spending time with my family at the lake, and playing with my Yorkiepoo puppy, Dahlia.

Welcome to second grade! I am so happy you are here!
My name is Hailey Edwards. I am a first-year teacher and am so excited to join the Park Avenue Team! I graduated from both Ashford University and Simpson College and obtained degrees in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. I love the Des Moines area and am eager to serve the amazing families here! I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, playing with my cat Izzy, and exploring new cities and restaurants!
I am so happy to be at Park Avenue and am looking forward to providing my students with opportunities to learn and grow together!
Welcome to Second Grade! I received my B.A. from the University of Northern Iowa and M.A. from the University of Iowa. In my spare time, I enjoy being with family, camping and traveling. We are going to have an amazing school year!
Hopes and Dreams: I hope to provide my students with rewarding experiences that will help them succeed in the future.
