Ms. Amanda Austin


I am excited to continue to be a part of the community here at Edison! The 2021-2022 school year is my 7th year teaching at Edison Middle School. In my time here, I have taught 8th grade Social Studies for 7 years, 7th grade Social Studies for 2 years, and this school year I am also teaching 6th grade Foundations.

I graduated from Illinois State University in May of 2013, with a degree in Elementary Education, as well as endorsments in Social Studies and Language Arts at the middle grade level.

I also have a Masters Degree in Differentiated Instruction from Concorida University Chicago, and I am a Google Certified Educator. Additionally in 2017, I was awarded the District 200 Distinguished Educator Award through the Student Excellence Foundation. 

I am the Edison Bloger teacher sponsor, and in past years I have been sponsors of Student Council and the Yearbook Club. In addition, I am one of Edison's track and field coaches, and this will be my second year coaching!

My goal as an educator is to inspire my students to become independent, lifelong learners through valuable and effective classroom experiences. My favorite part about history is helping students discover the repercussions of actions within different events in history, and connecting those events to their daily lives. 

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and shopping. Let's have an incredible year!
