My name is Susan Good-Knollinger. I graduated from Grand View College with a BA in Elementary Education and an endorsement in K-6 Reading. I have been a teacher for 12 years. I started my career in Des Moines, and moved to Florida for brief time. I have been at Hubbell for the past 6 years. I have taught first grade for all of my career with the exception of one year in Kindergarten. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your student.

Welcome to 1st Grade! I have been teaching at Hubbell since 2006. I grew up in Des Moines and graduated from Hoover High School in 2001. I attended Drake University and graduated in 2005 with my B.S.E. with Elementary Education (K-6) and endorsements in Math and Reading. My first year I taught 3rd grade at Wright Elementary. I then moved to Hubbell and taught Kindergarten for 10 years, 2nd grade for a year, and more recently was the IB Coordinator/Instructional Coach.  I am so happy to be back in the classroom working with kids and fostering a positive community.  I graduated with M.S.E. in Education Leadership: PK-12 principal in 2016 from Drake University.  I really like engaging my efforts with such diverse kids having diverse needs. I feel fortunate to be part of the team here at Hubbell and look forward to educating and embracing the successes your child contributes to our community.
