Hello! My name is Robin Aslesen. This year is my 9th year working in Des Moines Public Schools and I am excited to start my second year at Madison. I graduated from Augustana with a degree in special education and elementary education. I earned my masters from Drake in literacy education.
My husband and I live in Ankeny and have a 3-year-old daughter and a 1-year-old son.
My name is Miss Doeden and this is my seventh year at Madison Elementary as support staff. I taught middle school for six years and was so excited when I got the chance to move down to elementary. I currently work with K-5th grade students.
My family is very close and I get to see them quite often since they live in the Des Moines metro area. I enjoy traveling and being with my friends.
Madison is a special place and I’m glad I get to work with all the amazing staff and students.
I graduated from Northwest Missouri State University with my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Special Education and my Master’s degree in Reading. I taught Special Education in Maryville, MO for 7 years and one year at Newton, IA before coming to Madison. In my 19 years at Madison, I have taught Title Reading for eight years, 3rd grade for one year, 2nd grade for seven years, and Special Education for 3 years.
Hello! My name is Emily Jermeland and this will be my second year teaching at Madison Elementary. I graduated from Simpson College in April 2018 with a degree in Elementary Education and endorsements in special education, reading, and language arts. I am thrilled to be starting the year teaching in such a wonderful school district. I believe that all students are able to learn and I am looking forward to watching them grow throughout the school year. Outside of the classroom I enjoy reading, running, and spending time with my family and friends. I am excited to start a great school year at Madison Elementary!
