She also facilitated and led a variety of professional learning opportunities to support district curriculum initiatives. 

“I am very pleased to have Mrs. Palmersheim aboard as our Associate Principal at Prairie Point,” said Ian Dye who was recently named the building Principal for Prairie Point for effective July 1, 2020.  “Holly’s experiences in a high school classroom, district role, and most recent success as Associate Principal at Prairie Creek Intermediate make her a fantastic fit. Her instructional background, strong communication and recent experiences will help cement a strong transition support plan between Creek and Point for all of our students and families.”

Palmersheim, a native of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, earned her undergraduate degree in Math from the University of Northern Iowa, and two master’s degrees (Counseling and Educational Leadership) from Drake University.
