Mrs. Amy Spencer

This is my third year at Trailside Middle School and my eleventh year teaching mathematics.  I will be teaching Geometry and Math 7 classes this school year.  In the past, I taught Math 6; Accelerated Math 6/7; Algebra 1; Geometry; Algebra, Functions, and Data Analysis; and Algebra 2 classes.  I previously worked as an adjunct instructor of mathematics at Lord Fairfax Community College. 

 

I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education – Mathematics from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.  I earned my Master’s Degree in Educational Technology from Boise State University.

 

I have a caring husband and two daughters, ages 6 years old and 1 year old, to keep me busy at home.  When I have the opportunity, I enjoy baking, reading, walking, crafting, and crocheting.  My family loves visiting amusement parks, playing board games, and competing at miniature golf.  I live in Loudoun County now after 8 years in the Shenandoah Valley. 

 

I hope to make this year enjoyable.  I set my expectations very high for all students.  My goal is to provide my students with the skills needed to succeed during school and in life. I want students to leave my class as a confident learner with problem solving and logical thinking skills that can be applied to their everyday lives.  I am excited to meet my new students and anxious to start on a new journey this year.
