Greetings from the OH Art Room!

Mr.Halsten and Ellie at the Des Moines Zoo!
 My name is Chad Halsten and I'm thrilled to be a part of the friendly and very dedicated staff here at OH Anderson Elementary! I'm originally from Urbandale, Iowa and this is my 16th year of being an elementary art teacher. I absolutely love helping students become better artists and hearing them tell stories about their work. When I'm not at school, I enjoy going on weekend hikes with the family and watching Hawkeye football. I'm excited to get to know all of the new faces here at OH Anderson and am looking forward to a fun year! Please contact me if you have any questions.
