Ms. Amanda Madsen
Hey Frosties! My name is Amanda Madsen and I've been teaching for 15 years. I began my teaching journey in Las Vegas, NV where I taught 1st grade, 5th grade, as well as Science as a specialist. I moved back to St Paul after my niece and nephew were born, and love to spend all my free time doing projects and going different places, like the zoo, with them. Other than spending time with my family, I love going on walks with my two dogs, Max and Cooper, and traveling to new places.
I am so excited to share that my role has changed at Frost Lake this year!
After teaching Social Justice as part of the Specialist rotation for the past 3 years, I am entering into the role of Instructional Coach!
One of my main roles will be to support teachers with incorporating elements of Social Justice within all of the work we do in classrooms.
I will also work with staff to make sure that every student is growing and learning!
