Ms. Amanda Moore - Special Education/IMHP
I am so happy to be here. I previously taught at Sunny Heights as a resource teacher. Outside of school, I like to be with my family and my dog. I have a Siberian Husky named Indy. She is my world. I love to be outside and garden. This year I am teaching the Intensive Mental Health Program (IMHP) and we have five friends, K-4th (except 2nd). We would love to see you in our room or to work with you and your class throughout the year!
