Miss Amanda Porter

I am excited to start my fifth year at the Waynesville Sixth Grade Center and I will be teaching music! My family is fairly large! My parents divorced in 2001 and both remarried in 2003.  I have a biological brother, Ben as well as two step brothers, a step sister, and a sister-in-law. We all work a lot but get together when we can! In 2011, I became an aunt and it has been so much fun!!  One thing that I love to do is read, and some of my favorites are the Harry Potter series, the Green Rider series, and Pride and Prejudice. I also enjoy photography (mostly nature), gardening, watching TV shows and movies, and trying new things! I obviously love music; I listen to a wide variety. Some other hobbies are making crafts, putting puzzles together, and helping out at the local theater. Some of my goals are to teach all students to love music in some way and to have an appreciation for other genres! Someday I would love to visit Europe, especially London, and anywhere in Ireland. I would really love to get married and start a family, but it is not a major priority at the moment!

I can't wait to see what the new year brings!
