Amanda was born and raised in Howard County, Maryland and now resides in the Baltimore area. Amanda completed her undergraduate studies at University of Maryland, College Park in the School of Education and later participated in the Math Instructional Leadership Cohort at McDaniel College.
Amanda worked as a teacher in Howard County Public Schools for 6 years. During her time as a classroom teacher, Amanda was a leader in the Bridges afterschool program, which provided social and emotional development and academic tutoring. Amanda has worked as a private tutor for several years, working with middle and high school aged students in math and science. Working as a tutor providing one-on-one targeted support is what inspired Amanda to make the transition to Fusion Academy.
When Amanda is not teaching, she enjoys spending time with her husband Matt and her dog Miley. She also enjoys cooking and baking (and eating!).
