Dear Students and Parents,

    Hello, and welcome to the world of technology. My name is Miss Amanda Davies and I will be your child’s technology teacher this year. Let me start by telling you a little bit about myself. I grew up in Staten Island, NY and attended Saint Teresa’s School from preschool through eighth grade. My family moved to New Jersey and I began school at Barnegat High School. While I was in high school, I volunteered as a teaching assistant for the CCD program at Saint Mary of the Pines Church in Manahawkin, NJ. I recently graduated with a degree in elementary education and theater studies with a certificate in technology from Rider University in May. I have also received my Google level 1 certification this summer, making me highly qualified in Google apps for education. I have two cats named Salem and Bubbles, I love everything Disney and Broadway, and I am from a huge family.

    I am very thankful and overjoyed to be joining the family here at Saint Catharines. This year is going to be a wonderful experience for everyone. During my time at Rider University, I had the opportunity to take many courses in different areas of technology. I spent four years working to earn my technology certificate by learning about many applications for the classroom. During my time here at Saint Catharines, I plan to spend all of my time and energy planning exciting lessons to expose your child to the world of technology. I am also planning to help your child become a responsible digital citizen. My door is always open, so please feel free to contact me with any concerns you may have. I am very excited to go on this journey and look forward to working with you and your child.

Sincerely,

Amanda Davies
