Mrs. Amanda Grano
I love working with young children and encouraging a love of learning. I believe that learning can be achieved by helping students create an environment
where they are engaged, challenged and work cooperatively with others. As a teacher I model to both families and students that with high expectations, support and caring, students can achieve many goals.
As a teacher I encourage young learners to be problem solvers, and good communicators. I set high expectations and encourage students to reach their goals in all areas of learning.
