Hi my name is Brittan Bell and this is my third year teaching at Lovejoy. I am so excited to start my new journey in 3rd grade after two great years teaching 2nd. I graduated from Iowa State University with an endorsement in language arts and a minor in technology. I am excited to find new ways to incorporate technology into our daily learning.
Let’s have a great year!!!
Hello! My name is Danae Dabney and this will be my second year working at Lovejoy Elementary. I am 23 years old and originally from Urbandale, IA. I graduated from Iowa State University in the spring of 2019 with endorsements in Reading and English Language Arts. Go Cyclones! When I am not at Lovejoy, I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, reading, watching Netflix, and traveling. My most important goal is to create a family of learners in our classroom. I am committed to creating a classroom environment where your child is a valued, trusted, and integral part of our school family. I look forward to getting to know you and your student 😊

Hello! My name is Emily Wiederin. I teach 3rd grade here at Lovejoy Elementary. I graduated from Iowa State University in January of 2016 and started teaching in 2nd grade at Lovejoy just a few weeks after! This year will be my fourth year teaching 3rd grade.
I love teaching 3rd grade and working with the most fantastic, unique, and hardworking students. I truly feel like Lovejoy students are so special! When I’m not teaching I enjoy spending time with my friends and husband Keagan, reading, and being outside!
