Amanda has been in the classroom in some form since 2010. She taught 8th grade math for 6 years before transitioning to part-time work while her own kids were young. She offered support to teachers as a math interventionist for grades 5-8, tutor, and curriculum author. In 2019, Amanda re-entered the classroom as a part-time math teacher at an alternative high school, working with students in grades 9-12. In 2020, she served her community as an "extra" math teacher - focusing on the needs of the remote middle school students in her district. In 2021, Amanda officially re-entered the full-time, mainstream classroom as an Algebra 1 and Geometry high school teacher. She continues to offer professional development to teachers throughout the summertime and balances both Free to Discover and her role as a math teacher during the school year. Her variety of experiences give her a unique perspective about the scope and sequence of math education, and she uses that knowledge to coach other math teachers.
