Welcome to 2nd grade at Towne Meadows! My name is Amanda Dawkins and it is an honor to be part of the Towne Meadows family and the 2nd grade team. You will not believe how much your child will grow this year. We have so much planned and I can't wait to get to know you and your family.
I am an Arizona native and love living in the Valley of the Sun. I graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in Special and Elementary Education. My husband and I were married in May 2015 and welcomed our first daughter, Harper, on March 25, 2016. He is also a teacher at Highland High School and coaches basketball at Highland Junior High School. We also have 1 dog named Raja. This is my second year teaching 2nd grade at Towne. I previously taught 2nd and 3rd grade at Mesquite Elementary.
When I am not busy teaching, I love spending time with family and friends; we often travel to Colorado to visit my in-laws. I also like traveling around the country visiting MLB stadiums. My husband and I are on a mission to see a game in all 30 stadiums, we only have 13 more to go.
