Hi! My name is Angel Carman and I am so excited to be starting my 3rd year at Capitol View. This will be my 18th year of teaching and I absolutely love it! I began my teaching career at Moulton, as a 1st grade teacher, for 5 years. I then went to Cattell Elementary for 10 years, where I taught 1st grade, was an academic interventionist, and spent my last 4 years there teaching 3rd grade. This year, I have moved into an 4th/5th grade Interventionist position, here at Capitol View. Teaching is one of my greatest joys!
I graduated from Grand View in 2000 with my elementary education degree and an endorsement in reading. Several years later, I went back to school and got my master’s in education from Morningside in 2012. When I am not teaching, I love spending my time with my husband Ryan, my daughter Josie, and my son Cole. I am looking forward to a wonderful year with your child…thank you for sharing him/her with me!
I’m so happy to be part of Capitol View’s 3rd grade team! I began teaching with DMPS in 1999 at Willard School, then Madison before finding my home here at Capitol View. My own education trail was Willard, Hiatt, and then a proud alumni of East High School. I attend Central College in Pella with a BA in Elementary Education. I am a mom to three boys. My older two are both in college, and my youngest is still in elementary school. I love working with students and watching them grow and learn. One interesting fact is that my current classroom looks out onto the street I grew up on!
I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. Following graduation, I began my career as an Elementary Teacher. While teaching, I continued my education and earned a master’s degree in Education. As a professional, I have earned endorsements in Reading, Reading Specialist, Special Education and English as a Second Language. I have been a proud member of the Capitol View team since 2014.
“If you teach a child to read you have done your job. If you teach a child to love to read, you have changed their life forever.”
I just recently moved back to Iowa after a decade in Orlando, FL where I was a middle school reading teacher for 3 years. I attended The University of Central Florida and received my degree in Elementary Education with a reading endorsement back in 2012. I am a proud geek who loves to read, travel, and watch anything that has to do with superheroes or magic!
