Miss Amanda L
Amanda joined the Sun Grove staff in February 2021 and was fortunate enough to work with the amazing Toddler staff. She is excited to join the Primary team this year. She has been a Sun Grove parent since 2016 and her children, Henry (Lower Elementary) and Rhys (Primary) both started their Montessori education at Sun Grove in Toddlers. She has been interested in the Montessori philosophy ever since learning about it during a brief stint as an Education major in college. Amanda has a BA in both English and the Humanities from Valparaiso University. She spent two years as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at Florida Atlantic University while pursuing a Master’s in American Literature before leaving the program to relocate to Madison, WI where she worked for several years as a Licensed Massage Therapist before returning to South Florida. Amanda loves to read and enjoys hiking, kayaking, and canoeing with her family.
