Hello! My name is Cynthia De Meyer. I grew up here on the South Side of Des Moines and attended Des Moines Public Schools. I graduated from Central College in 2001 and again from Grand View University in 2003. I have been teaching in the Des Moines Public Schools ever since! I am so excited to be a part of all the amazing changes happening here in DMPS and especially here at South Union Elementary. You can follow along with our classroom and our journey by following us on Twitter @MrsDeMeyerSU. Go Rails!
Hi, my name is Tiffany Sparks and I am a fourth grade teacher at South Union Elementary School. I graduated in 2006 from Central College with a BA in Elementary Education and endorsements in reading, early childhood and special education. I am excited to begin my 10th year of teaching in the Des Moines Public School District.
I love teaching fourth grade and watching my students grow throughout the year. I believe in creating a classroom environment where students feel they are valued, supported, and part of a team that works together to achieve high levels of learning.
Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two children. I also enjoy cooking, shopping, and movies!
Feel free to contact me with and questions or concerns.
