Amanda Pounds - 2nd Grade
I became a teacher because I wanted to make a difference in children’s lives. I want to help empower students to believe in themselves. I want them to know that they are cared for, loved, and that they and their voice matters. I love how the staff works together as a team! I also love that students get the opportunity to learn the arts and environmental science with hands on experience and trips!
I believe that all children can learn once they know that they are loved and cared for. Each child is unique and so is the way they learn. Every child is talented, it is my job as a teacher to help them reach their full potential and achieve success. I love running and reading! I collect books, especially children’s books, and have a passion for literature and helping students find the right books so they fall in love with reading too.
Every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story.
