English and Social Sciences Educator
Amy has worked with students with exceptional needs for over 15 years in both the public and private settings. Beginning her career in a Wake County public school behavior support classroom, Amy went on to work with students of varying areas of exceptionality in regular and resource middle-school classrooms. In 2006, Amy entered the private sector and founded the Learning Specialist department at an area private middle and high school supporting teachers, parents, and students with learning differences. In 2013, Amy took a break from the school setting to stay at home with her two young children. Upon returning to the work force in 2016, Amy provided academic and ADHD coaching to students with executive skills weaknesses through her own private practice.
Amy holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Master’s degree in Special Education from North Carolina Central University and will be bringing her personal philosophy that all students can learn and want to achieve to her role as the Language Arts / English and Social Studies / Social Sciences teacher for Middle / High School students.
When not in the classroom, Amy’s favorite thing to do is to spend time with her husband and three children.
