My name is Amanda Spirk. I am a 4th Grade teacher at Queen of All Saints. I have been teaching at QAS since 2007. I have taught 6th grade for 4 years, 3rd grade for 2 years, and 4th grade for 9 years. I have enjoyed every minute of it.
I graduated with my bachelor's degree from Southeast Missouri State in 2005. I have an emphasis in Science.
I have been married for 16 years. I have two beautiful children, Zachary and Abigail. Zachary is currently in 6th grade and my daughter Abigail is in 2nd grade at Queen of All Saints. My husband and I love the teachers and community at QAS.
4th grade is a transition year for the students. I try to encourage them to be themselves and I remind them that each one of us is created in our own unique way. I want them to learn responsibility and be responsible for their own actions.
