Charlotte Hunkele is the wife of Deacon Tom Hunkele, who is assigned to serve at St. Anthony Church, and the Middle School Language Arts  teacher.  They have five children and six grandchildren. She and her husband are members of the core team for Deaconate Formation for the Des Moines Diocese, and both enjoy playing golf. In addition, she is the Schola Director for the 11am Mass at St. Anthony Church.  

Mrs. Hunkele has been a teacher for many years and has taught the grades from elementary school to the college level. Prior to joining the SAS family, Mrs. Hunkele taught at the Teacher’s Academy in Newton at Des Moines Area Community College and was an English teacher at Chariton High School in south central Iowa. While at DMACC, her students were learning how to be teachers and she had the pleasure of observing them in classrooms. The observations reminded Mrs. Hunkele that her heart belonged to classroom teaching.

This year she will be the Middle School English Language Arts teacher. Mrs. Hunkele holds a Master Teacher license and recently received her Education Specialist degree (Ed.S.).
