Ms. Amber Sanders
Hello! My name is Ms. Sanders and I'm so excited to be your 2nd grade teacher this year! This is my first year teaching 2nd grade, however, this will be my fourth year teaching in all. My first two years, I taught 1st grade in Lynchburg, Virginia, and last year I taught 4th grade here at Discovery. I have my Master's in the Art of Teaching from James Madison University, where I also minored in Spanish.
I currently live in Ashburn with my dog (Chowder) and cat (Guinevere), who are very spoiled! In my free time I enjoy playing my ukelele and reading a good mystery.
I love making learning fun and believe students learn best when they are happy, excited, loud, and moving around. I strive for my students to have a love for learning so they can grow up to be life-long learners!
I'm looking forward to having a stellar year in second grade!
