Hi 3rd Grade!
My name is Mrs. Denning, and I am so excited to be your teacher this year! This will be my first year teaching at Lovejoy, so I’m looking forward to learning and growing with you. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Northern Iowa. I live in Altoona with my husband Kyle and 2 daughters. In my free time, I love spending time with my family, watching sports, reading, and sharing delicious meals with friends! I can’t wait to build our classroom community, watch you learn, and challenge yourselves to reach for new goals!
My name is Mrs. Reece and this is my second year teaching at Lovejoy. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Northern Iowa and received my master’s degree from Drake University with a reading endorsement. In my free time I love to spend time with my husband and our dog, Cash. I enjoy spending time outdoors, hiking, paddle boarding, biking, swimming and traveling. In second grade we will challenge ourselves, make new friends, and have fun while learning new things!
