Hello! My name is Kelsey Grulke and I am so excited to be the 3rd grade teacher for St. Luke the Evangelist! I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in December with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education.  I also have endorsements in reading and math.  I am thrilled to be able to experience my first year of teaching with this class!

In December, I moved to Ankeny and got married! My husband is also a teacher. In my free time I enjoy reading, crafting, spending time with family, baking, and biking with my husband!

I am so happy to meet all of the friendly families of St. Luke’s!

Hello! My name is Katie Fox and I am so excited to be teaching third grade at St. Luke’s! I am originally from Sioux City, Iowa. Growing up, I attended Bishop Heelan Catholic Schools and I am so grateful for my experiences there. I loved the strong sense of community and opportunities to live out my faith from an early age. I am confident that our students will have similar experiences with their Catholic education.

I am a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa. My degree is in Elementary Education with a Literacy Endorsement. Last year, I spent 10 weeks student teaching in third grade in a Catholic school in Omaha, Nebraska. I loved every second of it! I am looking forward to spending a full year in third grade with this class!

In my free time, I love wandering the school supply aisle at Target, watching the Chicago Cubs win, reading, and spending time with my friends and family. I have very high hopes for this school year. I cannot wait to get to know all of the amazing families of St. Luke’s! It’s going to be a great year!!
