Amy has been teaching for eight years, and she considers herself lucky to be starting her fourth year at Phoenix Academy. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of Nebraska – Omaha. She is certified in Project Wild, Project Learning Tree, and Project Wet, which are all educational programs that bring nature and environmental protection into the classroom. She has wanted to be a teacher since she was a second grader, and so she considers teaching her true passion. She is a proud mom of one son and one daughter.
