Ms. Dana Hollinshed
My name is Ms. Dana Hollinshed and I am the 3rd grade teacher at Ames VPA. I have been teaching for 13 years. Before becoming a teacher, I worked as a Respiratory Therapist for 15 years. I changed careers knowing that I had a lot to offer from where I came. I enjoy teaching because of the satisfaction it gives me as each student makes miraculous gains!
In the 3rd grade, students are expected to work hard and be ready to learn each day. Homework is given daily and should be completed as it helps reinforce the learning that took place in class on that day.
Parents, you may call me with questions or concerns. Please call the school at 314-241-7165. I look foward to speakinng and/or meeting with you. For your convenience, I usually have a planning time daily and could meet within the time frame of 2:20 pm and 2:45pm.
