Hi! I am Amanda Kizer. I am a wife, mom, Sunday school teacher, and a future elementary school teacher! I attended Auburn for a few semesters for nursing before taking a few years off with my first child. Raising and teaching her led me to a passion for teaching. She had a huge part in my decision to become a teacher two years ago and so my journey began.

I will student teach this fall and graduate in December with a major in Early Childhood Elementary Education and a minor in Social Work.

This summer I have been teaching at the Glen Iris Summer Program and have enjoyed learning right alongside my students.

Welcome to my 2nd grade classroom!
