Miss Amanda Austin
I am excited to continue to be a part of the community here at Edison! This is my fourth year teaching 8th grade Social Studies at Edison Middle School. I have also taught 7th grade Social Studies at Edison for 2 years.
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 am currently in the second year of my masters program of Differentiated Instruction at Concorida University Chicago.
Additionally, I am a Student Council sponsor here at Edison. We plan school events throughout the year, such as the student vs. staff basketball game, school dances, and Panther Palooza!
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!
