My name is Amanda Parker and I am so happy to be starting my 12th year of teaching this year! I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelors in Applied Learning and Development in 2006. I taught in Mesquite for 7 years (5 years in second grade and 2 years in Kindergarten). I taught first grade the past four years and I am very excited to be teaching 2nd grade this year. I've always had a passion for teaching children and encouraging them to become life long learners. Getting to watch my students grow each year is so rewarding and I'm blessed to now be able to do that here at Sunnyvale. I look forward to getting to know each and every child in my classroom along with their families.
My husbands name is Cameron and we just celebrated our 7 year anniversary! We have no kids of our own yet, but we do have two furry babies, Bevo and Bella, who are very much a part of our family!
