"I'm Amanda. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education for grades pre-kindergarten through fourth grade. I went on to get a Master's Degree in Reading and a TESOL endorsement to teach English as a Second Language. I love learning, and it is one thing I want to pass on to all of my students.

I have taught these subjects exclusively in the classroom setting and in intervention settings with small groups of students and on an individual basis.
