Hello! My name is Amanda Helsley, and I am excited to be at Hillside this year! This will be my ninth year of teaching, and my first year in Loudoun!
I graduated from Virginia Tech with a Bachelors in Music Education in 2009, and earned my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction in 2010. I also have a graduate certificate in Adult & Organizational Learning from Northeastern University. I am a clarinetist, vocalist, and novice guitar player. I enjoy teaching folk dancing, creative movement, and music literacy. In my free time I enjoy reading, practicing calligraphy, building miniature models, and spending time with my niece.
