Amanda has a class full of little geniuses. As a Google Certified Educator, she has implemented “Genius Hour”, a creative program that helps inspire students by allowing them to explore their passions. This makes for an exciting learning environment where visitors “see a buzzing classroom with students actively engaged in a variety of digital tools.”  Amanda explains that her greatest passion in life is her students' success, so in her class, students and teachers work collaboratively as a community of learners to become 21st century problem solvers.

Fun Fact:  Amanda uses her free time to tour zoos and aquariums across the South with her family.
