My name is Christal Cataldo and I am excited to be part of Hanawalt! I have been working in the DMPS Assistive Technology and Focus programs for the past two and a half years. Before that I spent six years as a school librarian. I love traveling and spending time with my husband and two daughters. Some of our favorite places are New York City and Florida. In my free time I enjoy exercising, reading and playing with our two dogs. I look forward to working with the staff, students and parents!
Hello! My name is Catarina Hathaway, and I am the Enrichment Leader at Hanawalt Metro Kids. I have been with Hanawalt Elementary since January of 2022, and with Metro Kids since 2014. I love to provide fun and engaging after school care for all of our families at Hanawalt! I enjoy watching movies (especially superhero movies!), playing video games, drinking coffee and spending time with my husband.
Tiffany has been in the social work field since 2004, a SUCCESS case manager in the district since 2018, and has been supporting families at both Hanawalt Elementary and Greenwood Elementary since 2020. She earned her undergraduate degree from Creighton University and graduate degree from Upper Iowa University.
Tiffany loves building relationships with students and their families, and being able to work both in the building and the community. Families may reach Tiffany by email, or calling or texting 515-401-5020.
I have been the school nurse here at Hanawalt since 1995. I graduated from the University of Iowa with my BSN. I have one daughter who also graduated from Iowa and is working in Ames. I obviously love being here at Hanawalt and working with our students, staff, and parents.
