Amanda Renee King

Teacher in Chicago, Illinois, United States

Hire me

Teacher interested in developing her student's curiosity and enthusiasm for the world around them. I work to teach my students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and respectful humans, who are equipped to grow and succeed in their ever-changing world.

In my current position, my students build their first websites, code games, make 3D models of their own Mars survival inventions, and take charge of their own learning through a modified Genius Hour.

I'm an avid traveller, fluent in German, and advocate for social justice. I also play too many board games, and try to keep my guitar and piano skills intact (but only from time to time).
