The dedication she has is simply amazing. I could never explain to her how much we appreciate all of her hard work.
1.) Favorite TV show – or the last thing you binge-watched on Netflix
I am a Grey's Anatomy girl! I have never missed an episode! I also really love This is Us!
2.) Favorite local sports team – Broncos, Rockies, Avalanche, ETC (if not a Colorado team – then who and why?)
My husband and I are die hard Broncos fans! We enjoy hosting friends and family for games. We also really enjoy going to the Eagles games as often as we can! However, my favorite athletes are the hard working student athletes at Frontier Academy. I love watching these students show off their athletic abilities.
3.) Favorite quote or most inspirational person in your life
I know this is going to sound cliche and a tad bit cheesy, but when I think about who inspires me, my students are always the first thought. Middle school is hard, but I see these students work hard and struggle through all the different changes that come with being in middle school. They never give up, so, in turn, I never give up!
4.) Favorite thing about living in Colorado
I tried living somewhere besides Colorado several times, however this is my home.
It takes a special person to be a teacher, but it takes an exceptional person to treat a student with special needs with kindness and love.1.) Favorite TV show – or the last thing you binge-watched on NetflixMy favorite tv shows are the decorating ones on HGTV. (But my favorite radio station is K99!)2.) Favorite local sports team – Broncos, Rockies, Avalanche, ETC (if not a Colorado team – then who and why?)Broncos all the way -- especially after last night! Sure feels better to win!3.) Favorite quote or most inspirational person in your life"It is what it is, but it will be what you make it." My family inspires me.4.) Favorite thing about living in ColoradoThe weather, mountains, and the people.
In the classroom, Mr. Doddridge encourages our learning, understanding, and appreciation of music. All of his classes are fun and interesting for everyone, and every student loves his class and his fun & energetic teaching style.
Although many teachers did and do care greatly for my child, Mr. Kathan was able to take all of his skills from media technology and to help my child leave his class with a grasp on technology and the added ability to advocate for herself beyond what she began with.
She is an amazing educator. I wish every teacher was like Amanda. This world could use many more of her.
Ms. Helfrich pushed me when no one else would. She loves to help others and no matter what her day was like, she always wants to help the students. She's made the biggest impact on my life.
