My name is Amy Erwin and I am excited for my fourth year on the Capitol View team! I am in my 21st year of teaching and have experience in lower elementary as well as upper elementary special education. I am active in multiple leadership roles within our school as well as within the Des Moines district and love opportunities not only to grow as a professional, but to help other teachers do so!
I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education and a coaching endorsement. I completed my Master’s Degree in Special Education at Drake University.
When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and children. I also enjoy exercising, reading, and socializing with friends. My favorite part about being a teacher is watching students become independent thinkers and team players. I love to watch students grow!
