Credentialed Educator #10501058 (OR)
Masters in Secondary Education (2007)
Amy is a professional educator with 20 years classroom experience with over 2,000 students in the U.S., Japan, Singapore, India, Bhutan, and Thailand. After graduating with honors from Texas State University, her first post was in Japan, where she discovered her love for connecting with students and accelerating their growth. In 2006, she earned her Masters in Secondary Education at the University of Oregon, gaining credentials in teaching English Language Arts, Social Studies, and English for Speakers of Other Languages.
During the last 20 years, Amy has taught at top-tier international schools, instructing in core subjects including Writing, Reading, Literacy, Social Studies, ESOL, and Model United Nations from grades 6 through 12. Most recently, she worked at the International School Bangkok, teaching English Language Arts and English as a Second Language, specializing in Columbia University’s Reading/Writing Workshop model of literacy education.
During her career, Amy has taught students from a variety of cultural and educational backgrounds, as well as diverse learning strengths and needs, such as ADHD/ADD, ODD, dyslexia, and dysgraphia. She believes each student brings unique gifts to the learning experience, and their voices should be celebrated. Amy is skilled at connecting with neurodiverse students and adults by creating a warm, encouraging, and non-judgemental atmosphere, guiding them to overcome challenges with task initiation, self-motivation, inhibitions and procrastination, emotional regulation, and problem solving.
By helping students create small wins that compound into greater success and confidence, Amy has a demonstrated ability to have them develop a renewed sense of optimism and ownership over their learning. She also loves supporting adults to reach their personal goals and feel greater satisfaction, creating more time to focus on what matters most to them.
