My name is Roberta Brookes. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa. I have worked in Des Moines for 27 years. Before I came to Oak Park in 2018, I taught at Smouse for 24 years. I have 4 children and 2 grandchildren. When I’m not teaching I enjoy time on the beach, reading, gardening, walking, exercising, and spending time with family.
My name is Hayley Mora. I am a special education teacher at Oak Park Elementary. I graduated from Iowa State University in 1995! Go CYCLONES!! I have endorsements in special education, reading, early childhood and social studies. I grew up through the Des Moines Public School system as a student and I love having the opportunity to teach in the same learning system I loved so much.
I have two children Sam-9 and Julia-6. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, riding bikes, watching movies, and cheering for the Cyclones.
