Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Amy Knodell

My name is Amy Kodell (no-dell) and I am very excited to begin my 3rd year as a part of the Resource Team here at Potowmack Elementary School.  

I am a mom of three busy kiddos (7th, 9th and 11th graders) who all keep me at the soccer fields on nights and weekends. I enjoy traveling, watching sports, playing golf and Caramel Latte's. 

Born and raised in Downers Grove, Illinois. I am a HUGE Chicago sports fan!

I completed my Masters in Instructional Technology at George Mason University and hold a postgraduate professional teaching license (Spec. Ed. K-12 & E.L.). I attended Illinois State University for my bachelors in Special Education.  

My life's adventures have included over 13 years of teaching experience ranging from Pre-K, ECSE, K- 12 and Corporate Training.
