Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Amanda MacIntosh and this will be my second year teaching at Oakdale Elementary school. This will be my 5th year teaching and in those five years, I have only taught 4th grade. I am excited to continue teaching 4th grade this year!
I have been married for three years to my wonderful husband John and we have one son, Dominic. He is our absolute world and we could not imagine life without him. He keeps us quite busy. In our spare time, we enjoy spending time at the park, pool and the beach. My hobbies include reading (I love a good mystery/thriller book) and watching any competition show. The Voice is my favorite!
I graduated from the University of South Carolina Upstate. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and I recently completed my Master’s Degree in in Special Education.
As a teacher, my goal is to create an environment where my students feel comfortable and safe to meet and exceed their individual goals with a positive attitude.
Nothing is greater than to see a student have an “ah ha” moment after working through a difficult concept!
