2018 Teacher of the year

Left to right: President Ruth Haus, 2018 Teacher of the Year, Darice Pamperin, and Education Director Dan Jones.

Farmstasia is a casually elegant fundraising dinner and auction at Living History Farms. We also celebrate our Teacher of the Year at the event — someone who brings history alive for his or her students. Proceeds from Farmstasia support Living History Farms’ extensive education and outreach programs, which serve nearly 23,000 students annually.

Congratulations to Darice Pamperin, our 2018 Teacher of the Year. She is a first grade teacher at St. Francis Catholic School in West Des Moines.
