Hi! I am Ashton Linnell and I am the elementary talented and gifted teacher at Iowa Valley. I also teach junior high exploratory (typing) and high school business and computer classes! I attended Clear Creek Amana and graduated in 2004. Following graduation, I attended the Univeristy of Iowa where I graduated with degrees in Elementary Education and Business Administration. Following graduation in 2009, I taught high school business at West Branch High School. The following year, my husband and I moved to Indiana while he attended Physician Assitant school. I taught high school computer technology for two years while we were there! Upon returning to Iowa in 2012, I began teaching at Iowa Valley. I recieved my TAG endorsement from Morningside College and am currently pursuing my Master's in Education from Morningside. My husband, Robert, and I live in Amana. We have three cats (Greta, Nora, and Gabe) and a dog (Jax). We are big Hawkeye fans, as we are both University of Iowa graduates!
