Amanda H. Smith
Welcome! Amanda H. Smith is a secondary mathematics educator.
I am currently teaching at Guajome Park Academy, a charter school in Vista, California. For the 2020-2021 school year, I am teaching IB Math Applications & Interpretations (Standard Level and Higher Level, 11th & 12th grades) as well as serving as a High School Math Intervention Specialist. In my role as an intervention specialist, I have been pushing in to help students in Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 classes.
I previously taught for eight years at West Forsyth High School in Cumming, Georgia (2012-2020). I have six years experience teaching AP Calculus AB and two years experience teaching AP Calculus BC. I also taught various other mathematics courses during my time there, including Support classes up to Accelerated Honors, and from 9th grade up through 12th.
I am credentialed to teach mathematics in both California and Georgia, including English Learner Authorization (ELA1). I am also credentialed to teach psychology in California. Please see my resume for details.
I am passionate about learning and believe in continual self-improvement. I am always learning, and I strive to inspire curiosity and questioning in my students. My pedagogy centers on empathy and respect for all learners.
