Amanda’s Bio

As a speech language pathologist in a school district, I enjoy getting to spend my days with children. With over 10 years of experience caring for children, I have worked with children of all ages, including multiples (twins and triplets) and children with special needs. I speak some Spanish and know a little sign language and have also taken many classes in Early Childhood Education. I enjoy doing crafts, dressing up, and taking children on outings or walks outside in the summertime. I am totally comfortable cooking and driving students to and from school and other activities. I am also certified in First Aid and CPR and I have experience working with children who have autism or other special needs. I love dogs too so pets in the home are fine with me!
