My Name is Ms. Amanda, and I am a Preschool teacher. This is my fourth year in Aurora Public schools. I have been teaching for 10 years. Before coming to Colorado I lived in Chicago and Japan. I received my Elementary Education degree from Metropolitan State University. I also have received my Directors Qualification. In my free time I enjoy baking, cooking, loom knitting, hiking, traveling, and spending time with my beautiful daughter. At Century Elementary I love that when my students walk in the room they feel safe, and that they know they are part of a family. They know that we all work together to make our classroom successful. I also like that we have a open door policy where families can come and observe. I can’t wait to see what the year has in store!
