Mrs. Amanda Kirkpatrick
Hello! My name is Amanda Kirkpatrick. I am the Reading Support Teacher for both 5th and 6th grade students at Mayfield. I work with students from many different classes, as well as help to organize our school's Targeted Support Block instruction. I love language and literacy and strive to help our Mayfield students feel more confident in their reading ability! Prior to working in Reading Support, I spent 8 years here at Mayfield as a 5th grade language arts teacher. I love the atmosphere and the environment that Mayfield has to offer our students and staff!
I graduated from Wilkes University in Pennsylvania in 2013 with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education K-6, along with a certificate in Early Childhood Education and a minor in Psychology. In 2018, I graduated from Western Governors University with my Masters of Science degree in Curriculum & Instruction. I am currently enrolled in UVA's Masters of Reading program through a Manassas City cohort with the hopes of obtaining my Reading Specialist endorsement.
