Greetings! My name is Amy Makowski. I was born in Buffalo, NY and moved to the beautiful South in 2004. While still in Buffalo, I graduated from Canisius College with a Bachelor of Arts in English, and a minor in Creative Writing. Upon moving, I taught high school English in both Catawba and Union Counties in North Carolina. During that time, I completed my Masters Degree from the University of South Carolina (go Gamecocks!) in Literacy and Language. For the past 13 years, I have been a part of the Rock Hill School District, working at Sullivan Middle School, as a Language Arts teacher and ESOL teacher. I am thrilled to be returning to my roots of working in high school, especially at Northwestern!
