Biography

I have been teaching with Des Moines Public Schools since the fall of 1997. I taught 5th grade for 7 years at Mitchell Elementary before switching to 4th grade when I joined the Perkins Elementary staff in 2004. I attended The University of Iowa and continue to be an avid Hawkeye fan. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, chasing after my schipperkes Remy and Banner, running, and biking.

Biography

My name is Mrs. Katie Dall-Winther, and I have taught for the Des Moines Public Schools since August 2001. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a double major in Elementary and Middle School. My endorsements were in reading and Middle School. I also received my Master's Degree from Viterbo University with an emphasis in Literacy and Vocabulary instruction in 2005. My first 11 years of teaching were at the middle school level serving sixth through eighth grades teaching struggling readers through advanced readers.

I enjoy cheering on the Iowa Hawkeyes, gardening, and spending my time with my family.

I have worked for Des Moines Public Schools since graduation from Drake University in 1998.  I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement area in science.  My first year teaching, I taught 6th grade science at Merrill Middle School and 6th grade math at Callanan Middle School.  After my first year teaching, I transferred to Perkins Elementary.  I have taught science, 2nd grade, and 4th grade at Perkins.  I truly enjoy teaching 4th grade with the wonderful 4th grade team and feel that I have found my niche.  I achieved my Masters with a reading endorsement in 2007.  On a personal note I’m married and have one son. I spend most of my free time taking my son to and from gymnastic practices and meets and enjoy watching him achieve his goals.  Besides spending time with my family, I enjoy running in my free time.
