Amanda Sapera-1st Grade

Big picture

I am excited to have started my first year at Trivium Academy this year although I have been teaching for 6 years. I grew up in Mandeville, Louisiana and went to college at Ole Miss and LSU! I moved to the great state of Texas after graduation and I never looked back! Some of my favorite hobbies outside of teaching include traveling, attending sporting events (especially hockey), trying new restaurants, and spending time with my family and friends.

College: University of Oklahoma – B.S.

Teaching History: This is my first year at Trivium and I’m so excited to be here! Previously, I worked in Oklahoma for Jenks Public School District as a Kindergarten teacher.

Family: I have been married 19 years this month to my high school sweetheart. We have one daughter, who is a member of Black Gold Winter Guard, and currently pursuing an esthetician career. We currently live in Carrollton, TX with our 7-year-old rottweiler, Ares.

Interests/Hobbies Outside of School: We enjoy watching movies and hanging out with family! This year has been extra special as my family has been celebrating me since January as this is my #yearof40! All the celebrations consists of food and/or travel both of which speak to my love language.

Three Tips to Optimize Your Bloomz Experience

In order to get the most out of Bloomz as a parent, utilize these three features and experience excellent school communication. You and your family will be easily identifiable by teachers as you develop relationships to benefit your child’s academic and social-emotional success.

Upload Your Profile Picture

Teachers and parents will get to know you as they see your picture connected with your messages/posts. This is helpful for developing relationships with all staff at the school. It is also extremely beneficial for your child’s classroom teacher to know who you are at the beginning of the school year. Find out exactly how to upload your profile picture at the Bloomz Support Center.

Update Your Child’s Profile / Add Your Child’s Profile Picture

In order for you to join a class as a parent you’ll need to add the name of your child who attends that classroom. Adding the child name will show you as <parent of child> in your classroom. This will help other parents in the class know you as parent of child. Visit the Bloomz Support Center to learn how to add a picture of your child. Your child’s picture will show up next to your picture so that teachers and parents can see you are connected. You can also invite your spouse with the click of a button! Adding a spouse to your profile will automatically add him / her to the classes you are already part of.


Interact with one another through messages and posts. Talk to other parents, set up play dates, ask and answer one another’s questions, comment with positive feedback on teacher posts...It takes a village! With Bloomz parents have the opportunity to add more to the classroom community.
