Mrs. Amanda Amiel

Welcome to 7th grade English Language Arts! My name is Amanda Amiel and this will be my eleventh year teaching and my fourth on campus fulltime at Hillcrest. I am THRILLED to be teaching at Hillcrest Middle School. My sons were students here and loved it as much as I do. I am an Arizona State University graduate. (Goooo Devils!) I am certified to teach grades kindergarten through eighth and am highly qualified in Middle Grades English as well as Early Childhood Education. I carry endorsements in Structured English Immersion (SEI) and Mild to Moderate Disabilities in Special Education for grades K-12. I have two wonderful sons! My oldest is a junior at NAU (Goooo Jacks!) and my youngest will be joining him in Flagstaff as a freshman at NAU this year. I have been happily married to my high school sweetheart for twenty-four years. We have four dogs, a desert tortoise, and a newly empty nest for most months of the year. I am so excited to get to know your student and help them grow and improve this year.
