Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to first grade! My name is Amanda Little and I am so happy to be teaching your child this coming school year. I graduated from Saint Michael’s College in 2011 and have been working at Essex Elementary School for eight years. I have spent the past five years teaching kindergarten and am excited to be teaching first grade this year.
I live in Milton with my husband, Ryan, and our two children. Carter (7) and Cora (2). We have enjoyed our summer days swimming, playing games, camping and making forts in our living room. We are all looking forward to going back to school!
My mission as a teacher is to guide each child as they develop a strong belief in his or her own abilities. I will guide them to do their best and develop a sense of pride in all they do- success or mistake. It is important to me that our students appreciate and respect what makes each child unique. We will work together this year to build friendships, recognize and celebrate differences, and encourage one another to persevere through challenges.
