New Staff Highlight

Amanda Gilbert

Amanda grew up in Michigan and attended college at Michigan State University. She graduated with a degree in Journalism, a minor in English, and enthusiasm to go the extra mile and earn her secondary teaching certificate. From there, she moved to Detroit to work at an International Charter School and began her career. She taught high school Journalism and English courses. Thought she loved the content area, she know that she wanted work in middle school and thus began a new adventure. Amanda moved to Atlanta for this middle school position and a chance to be closer to her sister. Now she is at HMS on a mission to captivate students' interests and personalities through career studies! She thinks the HMS students and staff are all so energetic and sweet.
