Jayne Becker

Jayne Becker grew up in Hampton watching her teacher mother and aspiring to the same career. Today, she's fulfilling that dream as a first-grade teacher at Pineview Elementary School in Iowa Falls.

If you want to stump Jayne Becker, ask the first grade teacher what career she’d choose if she couldn’t be a teacher.

Since childhood, the Hampton native has wanted to teach young kids. She grew up with a mother who taught kindergarten, and looked up to her. When Jayne graduated from Iowa State University in 2010, she accepted a job offer in the Iowa Falls School District: special education at Riverbend Middle School. At college she’d earned an endorsement in special education, and she felt drawn to helping students who struggled.
