Ms. Amanda Carlino - Pre-K Blended
Hello, there! I'm Amanda Blaire Carlino. I was born and raised in Louisiana. My family live there, alongside my niece who is now a LSU freshman and a nephew who will be joining the 2nd grade this upcoming year. I graduated from Louisiana Tech University in 2011 and came to Texas, earning my degree in Teaching at Texas Woman's University in 2014. While this is my first year as an elementary teacher, I have had experience teaching in childcare and as a paraprofessional, all ranging from different age groups, from infant to 6 years of age. I have been with Little Elm ISD since 2018 and in various childcare programs since 2014. One of my favorite things about teaching is being there to help that "lightbulb" moment click for students! It's such a wonderful and beautiful thing to experience and see when they find something that learned interesting, engaging, and meaningful to them. It's one of the driving forces that makes me love my career!
Some of my favorite hobbies include reading, star gazing, swimming, and playing with my two adorable cats, Erza and Mavis.
For this year, we will be using the app Seesaw to work alongside with both in-school and virtual learners.
If you have any questions or concerns or celebrations you wish to share, please feel free to contact me!
