Hello! My name is Anna Suminski! I graduated from Drake University in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and I am currently back at Drake University working on my master’s degree! After graduation I moved to Ghana, Africa to help open a school. I spent one-year teaching, tutoring, and building an educational curriculum in Asikuma, Ghana. I currently work at Cattell elementary school. This is my sixth-year teaching at Cattell! I taught 3rd grade (1 year), 1st grade (3 years), and I am currently one of the English as a Second Language Teachers (2 years)! I mostly focus on working with newcomers and supporting ELL students K-5. ESL is my dream job! I love working with my students and their families! Go Mustangs!
This is my 15th year at Cattell as an ELL Teacher. Every year I am excited to meet our students and their families! I have also taught Kindergarten and 1st grade in Houston, Texas, Dodge City, Kansas & Burlington, Wisconsin. I graduated from Iowa State University, and I love cheering on the Cyclones! I am married and have 2 children. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, baking and shopping.
