Hello! My name is Stephanie Harden. I grew up on the East side of Des Moines where I attended Adams Elementary School, Goodrell Middle School, and graduated from East High School.
I have been with the school district for six years. I started as a Library Associate at Edmunds Elementary. This is my fifth year at Pleasant Hill Elementary. My first year I was a Special Education Associate. This will be my forth year as the Office Manager. I feel very blessed to be part of the Pleasant Hill Elementary family.
I live in Pleasant Hill with my husband Jeff, his son Levi 22, my daughter Jordan 24 and my son Robbie 21. I love to read, watch movies and walking our two dogs Griffin and Biscuit.
Hello families of Pleasant Hill. I’m so excited to join this amazing school! I’ve been working as a Registered Nurse for Ankeny schools and I’m so thankful for this opportunity to take over the School Nurse role here at Pleasant Hill Elementary!
I grew up in Des Moines and now my family and I are loving country living outskirts of Altoona. My husband and I have two daughters and two dogs. My oldest daughter is 20 and she’s attending DMACC. She hopes to become a Registered Nurse working in Pediatric Oncology. My youngest is 17 and is in her Senior year of Grandview Christian High School. She hopes to become an art teacher. Our dogs names are Sadie (Cocker Spaniel) and Molly (Border Collie) and they are both so sweet.
I absolutely love school nursing! I also enjoy camping, art, yoga, attending church, animals, family game nights, gardening and anything that involves nature.
I’m excited to meet you all and honored to be your School Nurse! I have no doubt that this is going to be a great school year.
