About Our Teachers
Hello! My name is Pam Deuel and I am an Early Childhood Special Education teacher at Prairie Elementary. I have been employed by District 518 since 1988. Previous to that I taught Early Childhood Special Education in Iowa for 11 years. I graduated from Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa with a degree in Child Development and Early Childhood Special Education. I enjoy working with children and families. It’s very rewarding to see families grow and learn along with their children.
My family and I are avid,” loyal and forever true”, Iowa State fans. You can find us cheering them on throughout the year. Go Cyclones!

In my free time I enjoy trying to keep up with my three young children.
