Meet Your Team Teachers WHO AM I?


Mr. Chubb


Hello! My name is Mr. Chubb and I am a part of the 6A team here at Monroe. I am one of the two math teachers on the 6A team. 
This is my 4th year teaching here at Monroe and I am originally from Des Moines, Iowa. I have two children, my son Ander, will be 4 in November and my daughter Adalyn, is just 7 months old. 
My favorite part about being a teacher is being able to get to know each and one of my students and being able to see them grow from the 6th to the 8th grade. I’m am so excited to work with the students and families of the 6A team!


Jaime Nyffeler


Hello all! My name is Jamie Nyffeler and I am the 6A Science Teacher. I am from Kansas City and just moved here in May! I went to Northwest Missouri State University and got my undergraduate degree in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation. I am a pet mom to 1 dog and 3 crazy cats! Some of my favorite things to do are… hang out with my family, be outside, and play the piano. My teaching philosophy is grounded in building relationships with students and getting them excited about science. I strongly believe that we cannot get anywhere with students until they feel that we care about them as a person- not just as a student in our class. I am excited to be at Monroe Middle and am looking forward to this year!

Hello everyone!  My name is Mrs. Podany.  I’m starting my 7th year as a certified teacher at Monroe Middle School. I’m certified to teach PreK-12 ESL, K-8 elementary education, and K-12 special education.
 I will be joining math and ELA teachers in their classes as a co teacher.  I am looking forward to meeting the students and parents.  


AnnMarie Weber


Hi, my name is Ann Marie Weber.  I am the 6A English Language Arts teacher.  My undergraduate degree is in Human Resources from Bellevue University and my graduate degree is from College of Saint Mary.  I live with my husband and son.  We like to be outdoors camping, fishing, and swimming.  My teaching philosophy is the belief that every child deserves to reach his/her full potential.  My goal is to teach real-life problem solving techniques to students so they will learn to be successful and approach meaningful solutions to problems not only in their schoolwork, but also in their personal lives.


Amalia Johnso



2020 school year is on! I’m very excited for us to work together this year to ensure that we can be the best learners we can be during this unique time in our history. My name is Amalia Johnson and teach Ancient History to our 6A students. I graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University with a B.S. in Elementary education and Middle School education with and emphasis in Art and Language Arts. This is my 6th year teaching but my 5th year as Monroe Mustang. 

My oldest daughter, Ayavene, is 7 and attends 2nd grade at Joselyn Elementary and my youngest, Lemon, is 3. This summer we recently added a fluffy standard poodle puppy named Enoch to our family! While we are learning about Ancient History we are also making history as we try to navigate receiving an education during this pandemic!
