I graduated from Central College in 2012 where I earned a B.A. in Elementary Education with endorsements in Reading, Art and Coaching. During my 10 years living in Pella, I taught and coached volleyball in Knoxville and Pella. I am excited to be the art teacher here at Samuelson! Outside of school I enjoy spending time reading, visiting with family and friends, and exploring Des Moines- parks, trails, libraries, restaurants… we have a toddler who keeps us busy!

My name is Tam Ho. I will be Samuelson Elementary Physical Education Teacher this year.
My wife’s name is Oanh, we live in Des Moines, and have two boys attending Des Moines Public Schools.
In my free time I enjoy golfing, fishing, and spending time with my family.
My goal is to get kids moving and help students find activities they enjoy and be active with those activities for a lifetime. Feel free to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
Hello! My name is Penelope Quesada and this is my first year at Samuelson and my 18th year teaching music. I am so excited to meet all of you during this school year. I love seeing students enjoying learning and making music. We are going to have so much fun! Besides my Music degrees (Music Education and Flute Performance) I am also certified to teach technology, robotics and STEAM. I am new to Des Moines and looking forward to enjoy many of the amenities that this beautiful city offers. I have two children, my son Thomas is studying at Purdue University and my daughter Andrea at University of Louisville. And, I have a cat named Lilac. Lilac gets to be my spoiled kitty.
Looking forward to a fantastic year at Samuelson!
