icon A message from Principal Barber

My name is Kristin Barber, and I am the principal at Northeast Elementary, and I am honored to serve the students, staff, and families within our community. I grew up in Ankeny and have 17 years of experience in education. I was previously a principal in the Ames Community School District. The Northeast learning community is a committed family that welcomes, challenges, inspires, and supports all learners. As a Leader in Me school, our students learn and apply the 7 Franklin Covey leadership habits within their classrooms, school, and our community. We invite you to partner with our staff to ensure the experience at Northeast is one that supports and engages your child to reach their full potential. Lead, Care, Inspire, Achieve!
