My name is Amanda Mathis and I am so excited to be teaching 2nd grade this school year at ValVista Academy ! I love the small, friendly, family community here at VVA and am privileged to be a part of this wonderful school! This year I look forward to getting to know your child and watching their amazing academic and personal growth.
Here is a little information about me. I have over 16 years of teaching experience in classrooms Kindergarten thru 3rd. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Northern Arizona University and have also been trained in Early Childhood Montessori Education. I received both an Early Childhood and SEI Endorsement. I am an Arizona native but as an adult my family lived all over the United States. I have been married to my college sweetheart for 30 years. I have 3 grown children and my youngest is in her 2nd year at ASU. We also have 4 dogs, 2 cats and a Bearded Dragon lizard! In my spare time, I love to travel, spend time with family and try new recipes.
This year your child will participate in active learning activities, learn new skills, do creative projects, make new friends, and will have fun in 2nd grade! I am eager to get to know all my families as well. Please contact me at email@example.com anytime you have questions, concerns or just to say hello!
Looking forward to a great year!! 😊
