Mrs. Amanda McKnight

7th & 8th Grade LEAP

A Little About Mrs. McKnight

This will be my 12th year teaching at Briarhill Middle School, which I really consider my second home. I teach 7th and 8th grade LEAP, and I also sponsor National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). I am so looking forward to what this year will bring at BMS! I've always known that I wanted to be a teacher, and even after all this time, I still look forward to going to "work". Basically put: I love my job.

A little more about me: I grew up in Fort Worth, where I graduated from Southwest High School. I then attended college at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas, where I was a member of the Cowboy Band and where I met my husband, Michael. After graduating from college, Michael and I moved to the metroplex, and I began my teaching career here at Briarhill. Michael and I have a 3rd grader named Emerson and a 1st grader named Maddie. We lead a beautifully full life!
