Ms. Amanda Brooks
Nice to meet you!
My name is Amanda Brooks, and I love working at Farnsworth Aerospace 5-8 as the 5th grade ELL teacher. My favorite part about working at Farnsworth is the interesting, dedicated, kind, funny, thoughtful students and staff whom I work with each day. Outside of work, I love to spend time with my family and my dog, Lila. I love to practice sports and travel, and I have lived in Chile, Mexico, and Colombia as a student or an international teacher.
During the school day, I support students in improving their academic language in order to speak and write like a scholar and scientist. More specifically, I provide language supports to students in whole group and small group settings to help them succeed in their Reading, Writing, Math, and Science classes.
My goal as a teacher is for my students to become aware of and use their strengths and abilities. My hope is that my students believe in themselves, choose courage, and become their best selves!
