Amanda Newman - TRSD Teacher of the Month

Congratulations to Amanda Newman, TRSD Teacher of the Month! Amanda has been a Special Education Teacher for 13 years and joined the Fruitdale Elementary team last year. Principal Heather Yount says "Amanda has been an amazing addition to the Fruitdale Learning Community. She has extensive knowledge in supporting students who are experiencing behavioral and/or academic challenges and works closely with both the students and the staff to identify supports for classroom success. She is also instrumental in identifying individualized accommodations to help our students thrive in the classroom. She is child centered in her approach to teaching and she has quickly become a safe advocate for many of our students. Our school and students are lucky that Amanda chose us!"
