My name is Nicole Bahl and I am part of the First Grade team here at Hubbell Elementary. I am originally from Iowa city, IA and came to the Des Moines area for college. I graduated from Simpson College in 2017 with a B.A. in Elementary Education and endorsements in English/Language Arts, Reading, and Spanish. While at Hubbell, I earned my Masters degree with an English Language Learning endorsement at Drake University in 2021. I am constantly looking for ways to grow and learn and hope to inspire your student to do the same. I look forward to helping them on their educational journey here at Hubbell. Go Hawks!
Hello, my name is Sue Good. I have been teaching since 1999. I have taught first grade for all but one of those years. I tried Kindergarten, but first grade is the best! I am originally from Des Moines. I was even a Hubbell student once. I graduated from Roosevelt High School and went to College at Grand View University. I have my master’s in urban education and Teacher Leadership from Drake University. I still live in Des Moines in the Drake Neighborhood. I have one son. His name is Parker. I enjoy spending time with my family. We like to do outdoor things. We also enjoy watching dirt track racing in Iowa. I have two pets. I have a dog (Buster), a turtle (Raleigh). I am so honored to get to work with all the Hubbell Families.
