My name is Amanda Akridge. I graduated from the University of Alabama in May 2016 with dual certification in Elementary and Early Childhood Education and a minor in Spanish. I did my internship through the Consortium of Overseas Student Teaching (COST) program in Merida, Mexico. This is my first year of teaching and I am thrilled to be a kindergarten teacher at Brookwood Elementary School! I completed a student teaching placement under a fellow kindergarten teacher (Misty Jones) in the spring of 2015. I absolutely love the Brookwood students and staff!
My hobbies include watching Alabama football (roll tide!), reading, visiting with family and friends, and traveling. I love traveling to new places and experiencing new cultures and parts of the world. I hope to learn from each of my students this year!
