• Welcome to Miss Amanda's Pre-Kindergarten Class

    Hello, Hamline Families! My name is Amanda Jagdeo and I love being a part of the Husky community. I use the pronouns she/her. The 2023-2024 school year will be my 15th year in education. I have Bachelor's Degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science from the University of Missouri - Columbia, as well as a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from George Mason University. I have had the privilege of teaching students across the country from Prince George's County, Maryland, where I taught Pre-K and 2nd grade, to Richmond, California, where I taught kindergarten. I have also had the opportunity to coach teachers across the country and have been a lead kindergarten teacher in Northeast Minneapolis. I am originally from Minnesota and I am thrilled to have the chance to expand my community connections so close to home. When I am not at school, I love to read, go for runs and eat delicious, gluten-free foods. You might even catch me walking my dog, Torii, around the Midway neighborhood!
