Mrs. Amanda Jenkins
My name is Mrs. Amanda Jenkins and I am so excited to be your Kindergarten Teacher this year!
This is my second year teaching at Scott Johnson Elementary.
A little bit about me and my family:
I am a Veteran of the United States Coast Guard. I spent 6 years serving my country and loving every adventure. I moved to Huntsville 8 years ago with my husband, Mark, and our kids, Markie and Addy.
We have a white dog named Manny and a black cat named Amos. My favorite colors are pink and Tiffany blue. My birthday is January 6 and my favorite candies are Twizzlers and Reeses Pieces. I like spend time with my family and going to my kids sports events (baseball, football, softball, etc.)
In July, we added the newest member to our family, his name is Maddox. I am beginning this school year at home with him and will be joining you for fun and learning in mid September.

I love using Class Dojo to post communicate with parents throughout the school year.
The app allows me to safely post or send pictures to parents of what we are doing throughout the day.
It is especially helpful when you ask your student "How was your day?" or "What did you do today?"
As a mother of 3 I know that more often than not the answer is "Good" and "Nothing."
Please download Class Dojo and use the login information sent home with your student or sent electronically from me.
~ Thank you!
