About Amanda


Bio

I am a Kindergarten teacher in my ninth year of teaching. I have also taught first and second grade and earned my M.Ed in reading. Teaching literacy is my favorite part of my day. I love helping children learn to decode and comprehend texts. I love passing on my love of reading to children.
I have two dogs that I spend most of my free time with. I also play the guitar and the piano. I enjoy cooking, painting, crafting, and of course, reading!

I am a Kindergarten teacher in my ninth year of teaching. I have also taught first and second grade and earned my M.Ed in reading. Teaching literacy is my favorite part of my day. I love helping children learn to decode and comprehend texts. I love passing on my love of reading to children.
I have two dogs that I spend most of my free time with. I also play the guitar and the piano. I enjoy cooking, painting, crafting, and of course, reading!

I have taught elementary reading for over 9 years. I participated in an AmeriCorps program called Jumpstart for three years while in college. Jumpstart targets students who may be at an early disadvantage in literacy. This inspired me to become an early childhood educator.

I have 9 years of experience teaching elementary students. I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grade. I have experience with a multitude of math programs. I am MathAddvantage certified (a math intervention program). I am also familiar with Project Read (a phonics program), Fundations and Handwriting Without Tears.

I have 9 years of teaching phonics, three of which have been spent in kindergarten, where phonics is a primary focus. I know a variety of different strategies to teach phonics to children. Phonics is one of my favorite things to teach, and I am extremely passionate about sharing these key skills of learning to read.

Contact me for more information if you would like to schedule lessons! I look forward to hearing from you.

Handwriting,

Handwriting

I have been teaching handwriting in my classroom for nine years. I have used Handwriting Without Tears, Project Read and Fundations, with Fundations being my favorite. I use many different strategies to teach handwriting, such as kinesthetic movements with whole body, songs, and using tactile objects to help create letter formation permanence.
Phonics,

Phonics

I have taught phonics for the past nine years, in kindergarten, first, and second grade. I have used Leapfrog, Projects Read, Trophies and Fundations. I have found the most success using Fundations with my students. I have taught phonics both whole class and in small groups. I tutored a student for one year who was recently diagnosed with dyslexia, and much of our time was spend on phonics. I also use strategies based on the individual learner's needs and learning style. I have received my M.Ed in reading, which allowed me to explore phonics interventions further.
