Kalyn Cody is a career educator. His teaching career spanned a variety of public schools; first in a small desert town in California, followed by a stint in Phoenix, Arizona, before settling in Des Moines, Iowa. After more than a decade as a classroom educator, Kalyn moved to Iowa State University Extension & Outreach where he works as a Family Finance Specialist, going out into the community to help his neighbors acquire the skills they need to reach their goals.

Kalyn received his Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction (Education of the Gifted) from the University of Northern Iowa and a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa.  He holds an Iowa Master Educator License with endorsements including K-6 elementary classroom, 5-8 middle school generalist, and pk-12 Talented and Gifted.
