Meet Ms. Amanda!
 

Wow! This will be my 9th year at Renaissance and my 19th year teaching.  Can that even be possible?!?  I feel so lucky that my whole family is a part of the Renaissance community. My son is in 5th grade at REMS and my daughter and husband spend their days at RSS attending 7th grade and teaching high school science.  You may see us in the mornings zooming to school on our ebikes.

 

We live in Castle Rock with our dog, two cats, and ten chickens.  In my free time I like to garden, play board games, read, and spend time outdoors.  I also love puns and terrible jokes!  

 

What do you call a chicken who counts her own eggs?

 

A mathemachicken!

 

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development and Family Studies from CSU and my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from CU Denver.  I taught in the primary grades for many years and then spent the past few years serving as the math specialist.  This year I will be the full time Gifted and Talented Facilitator.
