Why am I committed to the Amphi?
I am committed to Amphi because the staff is professional, dedicated, and knowledgeable. Also, I live in the district and have relatives who attended the Amphi schools. I know that the schools are fantastic schools for learning and growing.
Defining Moments in My Education Career:
One of my most defining moments was when a student that struggled academically and behaviorally came up to me the following year and told me how much he appreciate how much I cared about him and showed him what he could become if he tried harder.
Another defining moment was when, at the end of the school year, a student emailed me a wonderful letter about how much they enjoyed my class and how much they would miss me the next year.
Why am I teaching at AMS?
I love teaching Middle School. I love the attitudes, the enthusiasm of the students, and the fact that these are still learning about who they want to be.
