This is my first year with Walnut Street School and I am SO excited to be a part of the family! I have two boys who attend Walnut Street and a little girl. We enjoy being outside and snuggling with our fuzzy friends at our own personal zoo. We love all sorts of sports and we love to cook together. I am also active in the PTO and outside activities with the school and went all the way through DMPS growing up. Go Bears! On top of all of this, I am currently working on my education degree with a minor in art through DMACC and UNI.
HI! I’m Tina Stifel-I am the Office Manager here at Walnut Street School- I have been with the Des Moines School district for 23 yrs. I started out with DMPS in 1996 working in the cafeteria as a General Worker at Park Ave. Elementary school. I worked that position for 4-5 yrs. I decided to find other employment outside DMPS and was gone for 8 months than thought better of my decision and came back to Park Avenue as a SPED Teacher Associate. I worked that position for 6 yrs then decided it was time for another change and moved to the Office Attendance Clerk with Park Avenue for another 6 yrs. Once again, time for a change. I landed here at Walnut Street School at the end of the 2012-2013 school year and have been here ever since. I have made many connections with students and parents alike and cannot see myself in any other roll.
