Hello, my name is Amanda Carson and I will be working with the Middle School Humanities/ELA teams this year at Coonley. I worked as a TA with Mrs. Meegan last year in 8th grade, so I am very excited to get to know some new faces this year!
I have grown up in Chicago all of my life-I graduated from Lane Tech quite some time ago; completed my undergrad at Hope College in Holland, Michigan; and finally received my Masters in Education from National Louis University in 2014. I taught for 2 years at an inner city school on the west side of Chicago, and started my time at Coonley last year. This summer I also completed both my Social Studies and Math endorsements.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, playing beach volleyball, and going to Cubs and Blackhawks games!
