Hello prospective students and parents. My name is Amanda, or Mrs. P. I currently teach all levels of secondary mathematics as a certified teacher in the Idaho school district where I live. My career as an educator started when I was in college at George Mason University on the East Coast. Substitute teaching was a means to support myself while I finished my undergraduate degree. My passion for math, science, athletics, and service aided me in receiving an appointment to the US Naval Academy, where I spent two and a half years before being medically discharged (10 knee surgeries). My background includes several coaching and teaching roles.

Moving to Idaho in 2003 and accepting a job as a wilderness instructor for at-risk teenagers was an adventure. A few years later, while starting a family of my own, I made the decision to pursue my teaching certificate. My undergrad credits include math courses through calculus III, many science credits on a pre-med path, and then a change of course when I switched my major to psychology. I am currently in my 8th year as a high school math teacher.

The most pronounced successes I have observed started with student commitment, seeking extra one-on-on instruction. This is also my favorite part of my job. My teaching methods include adapting to specific learning styles, using humor to relate to students, and accountability....sometimes it just takes hard work and persistence to accomplish goals whatever they may be. I look forward to this new adventure in my life and getting to know my new mathematicians.
