I am so excited about a great year here at North Middle School in 6th Grade!
My name is Amanda Byard, and I have been teaching for the past seventeen years. I have spent ten of those years in 3rd Grade and the last seven years in 5th/6th Grade RLA. I graduated from the University of Tennessee with my Bachelors of Arts in Rhetorical Writing/ English and my Masters of Science in Elem. Education. I have two children, Lily-Kate, age 10 and Levi, age 8 .I love spending time with my family and playing outside.( I am trying to learn how to garden and preserve foods.) I also enjoy reading, especially book series like Harry Potter and Divergent (even though my all time favorite authors are J.R Tolkien and Roald Dahl.)
I grew up in Morristown, TN and have lived in Lenoir City for the past eleven years. I have spent the last six years here at North Middle School and before that at Philadelphia Elem. right here in Loudon County after moving from Hamblen County in 2008.
I love teaching, I love kids and I love reading, so there is no better job than being a Reading/ Language Arts Teacher!
