My name is Alec Craigmile and this is my first year teaching! I grew up in Adel, Iowa and graduated from ADM in 2013. While going to college, I worked as an associate in special education and this is where I discovered my passion for becoming a teacher. In 2017, I graduated with my associates in liberal arts from DMACC then transferred to Upper Iowa University. I graduated from UIU in 2020 with my bachelors in early childhood and special education with additional endorsements in special education and reading. I currently live in Dallas Center with my dog, Walter, and we love going on walks and cuddling on the couch while watching movies. I love learning new things and working with children. I am very excited to being my career here at Hartford!
