Miss Annie Kustoff
First Grade Teacher
Hi, my name is Annie Kustoff. I am so excited to be returning to the Shepard 1st grade team. This will be my 3rd year teaching. I grew up in San Antonio and am 1 of 4 kids. I graduated from the University of Iowa in May 2020 with my degree in Elementary Education. When not teaching, I enjoy spending quality time with friends and family, shopping, and baking. I love learning with my students and seeing everyone grow throughout the year. I know this year will be no exception!
