Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Amy Santos

Hello!  I can't wait to meet everyone!  Let me tell you a bit about myself.  I was born and raised in a tiny town in New Mexico and got my Bachelor's in Education at New Mexico State University.  My husband just retired from the Air Force, so I have had the opportunity to teach every grade from 1st through 8th.  I have teaching licenses from several states, from California to Virginia.  Along the way, I earned my Masters in Educational Technology.  Getting to build, create, and solve problems is a dream job.

I am so excited about beginning my fourth year at Trailside, teaching Tech Ed to our 7th and 8th Graders.  I absolutely love being in the classroom learning something new every day. When I am not at school, you usually can find me at the soccer fields watching my son's travel team.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, walking my spoiled dog, reading, shopping, photography and traveling to NYC every chance I get.  

My challenge this year is to have each student do something to make the world a better place.
