Hello! My name is Devin Brown! After high school, I went to Grand View University where I played softball. I love softball and continue to pursue my passion as a high school softball coach at Dowling Catholic High School.
It has always been a dream of mine to teach Kindergarten. I love getting to share a joy of learning with my little humans. It is amazing to see all of the skills they can accomplish during the year. Kindergarten is a fun year with a lot of growth. This is my 3rd year teaching kindergarten.
When I am not at school, I like to hang out with my boyfriend Christian, dog Tillie, family and friends. Christian and I live in Indianola with our little morkie Tillie. We like to go for walks, swim in the pool, go to the lake, and hang out with our families! I can not wait to be your teacher this year and see the growth you make!
Hi! My name is Kristin Lampkin! I have been teaching with Des Moines Public Schools since 2013. This is my first year teaching at Lovejoy. Before teaching Kindergarten, I taught preschool at Mitchell Preschool. I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education in 2013 from Mount Mercy University. I also received my master’s degree in teaching from Morningside College in 2016.
When I’m not at Lovejoy I enjoy spending time with my husband, son, and two dogs. We enjoy being outside, reading books, listening to music, and watching Minnesota Vikings football. Kindergarten is so much fun and I’m looking forward to teaching the kindergarteners at Lovejoy!
Hello! My name is Ashley Loveless! I have been teaching in Des Moines Public Schools since 2008. I taught 3rd grade for 9 years. This school year is my 3rd year teaching kindergarten and my 5th year teaching at Lovejoy. I live in West Des Moines with my husband and 2 sons. We also have a big and crazy yellow Labrador Retriever.
I grew up on the East coast and love the beach. I also love iced coffee and have a really big sweet tooth! When I am at home, I enjoy taking walks and spending time outside in the yard with my kids.
Kindergarten is full of fun. We will learn so many great things this year. I am really looking forward to being your child’s kindergarten teacher!
