School Spotlight

Mr. Opheim
New Math Teacher!

New Math Teacher! My name is Nathan Opheim and I am the new math teacher at Paton-Churdan this year. I am from Iowa City and have two sisters, one of which is my twin. I attended college at the University of Northern Iowa where I was on the tennis club and worked at the concession stand during sporting events. Last spring I student taught in Mason City and I am extremely excited to begin my teaching career at Paton-Churdan!!

Ms. Jass
New 2nd Grade Teacher!

New 2nd Grade Teacher! My name is Hayley Jass. I grew up in the small town of Alden, Iowa. I graduated from Iowa Falls-Alden High School and continued my education for one year at Ellsworth Community College. From there I transferred to Iowa State University for three years where I received my Bachelors of Human Sciences majoring in Elementary Education. I was able to student teach with Denise Menke at Paton-Churdan and immediately felt at home with this community and environment. I believe that Paton-Churdan Community School is a great place for students, staff, and the community and I could not be more excited to have the opportunity of being the second grade teacher here as a P-C Rocket!
