Welcome! I am Mrs. Hudecek, kindergarten teacher at Oak Park Elementary. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from University of Northern Iowa in 1994 and my Master of Science in Elementary Education with an emphasis in reading in 2002. I started my teaching career in 1995. I have been fortunate to have taught in Des Moines since 2004. My experiences include teaching sixth, third, and kindergarten.
My husband, Jay, and I enjoy spending our free time with our children. Aly is involved in cheerleading and dance. Jayson is involved in a variety of sports.
Most of my teaching career has been spent in teaching secondary mathematics. Seven years ago, I transferred to Oak Park Elementary and began teaching kindergarten. I absolutely love teaching this grade level! While teaching math is a passion of mine, I really enjoy helping students learn to read as well.
