New Teacher Spotlight: Welcome Natalie Dirkx!

Natalie Dirkx joins ADM High School teaching biology and accelerated chemistry. She is a graduate of Iowa State University, a first year teacher, and is extremely excited to join ADM because she wanted to join a school district that values academic success and prioritizes relationships! After attending a large high school herself, she said “I love the small town feel that the town of Adel offers.”  

Natalie has wanted to become a teacher her whole life. It wasn’t until high school that she knew that she wanted to teach science. “I want to show all of my students that science is exciting, engaging, and cool! I love building a positive classroom culture and building relationships with my students.” Outside of school, Natalie loves to spend time with family and friends, going on walks, baking and reading. Please welcome Natalie Dirkx to the ADM High School team!
