My name is Matt Robie, and I am fortunate to serve students and staff as the Principal of Grant Ragan Elementary. I’m proud to work alongside talented teachers as we work to deliver on Waukee’s mission, optimizing individual learning and potential for success in a global community.
I received my B.A. in elementary education from the University of Northern Iowa in 1999, an M.S. in education from Michigan State University in 2005, and an M.Ed. in educational administration from Iowa State University in 2015. I hold teaching endorsements in K-6 elementary teaching, K-12 talented and gifted, K-8 reading, and K-8 science.
This is my fifth year as a Waukee Community School District administrator and my third year as the Grant Ragan Principal. Previously, I served as an instructional coach, ELP teacher, and elementary classroom teacher. I am also a past president of the Iowa Talented and Gifted Association (ITAG). My wife Jann is a physical therapist in Ames, and we are the proud parents of three sons Luke, Nicholas, and Jack.
