My name is Amanda Hawkinson and I have taught elementary education for 2 years. Before that I was a dance instructor, health educator, and child care provider.
I love to teach using a hands-on, differentiated approach that encompasses multiple learning styles.
Graduated Suma Cum Laude and with other Honors from Wichita State University and Newman University
I graduated from Wichita State University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre in 2008. Then went on to obtain an additional Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education in 2013 and a Masters of Science in Organizational Leadership in 2015 from Newman University.
Before teaching in the public school system, I worked in advertising. During this position, I spent much of my time educating the public on basic nutrition principles. Additionally, I taught Pre-kinder and Kinder dance for children with disabilities.
