Ms. Amanda Straus
Hi! My Name is Ms. Amanda Straus! I will be your child’s 7th or 8th grade teacher for the 2017-2018 school year! This will be my 1st year teaching at Carson Junior High and I am excited to make this my best year yet! I have lived in Arizona since 2007 and went through Chandler Unified School District. I completed my student teaching in Mesa Public Schools and fell in love with the district and the overall community. I am very passionate about teaching students with disabilities and will always be a huge advocate for my students to continue their schooling and go on to college.
In May of 2017, I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelors of Arts in Elementary Education and Special Education from Arizona State University. I plan to continue my education and pursue my masters degree in Special Education or Educational Leadership.
Thank you for allowing your child to be in my class!
The best way to reach me is through email, I will respond to emails before and after school, and during my prep period occasionally. I will always try my best to reply within 24 hours! :)
