Degrees and Certifications:
B.A. in Elementary Education CLD Endorsement
Welcome to Ms. Amaya's 1st grade classroom! I hope everyone had a great summer, but I sure am ready to see our amazing scholars again!
My name is Ms. Amaya and this will be my second year teaching first grade at James Madison STEAM Elementary and my second year teaching overall. I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse endorsement from the University of Northern Colorado in fall of 2022.
I was raised here in the Greeley area and I actually attended a couple schools here in the Greeley-Evans district for elementary and middle school, so I have come full-circle! When I'm not teaching I like to listen to music, watch soccer with my dad, hike / go to the mountains, hang out with family, and capture pictures of the sunrise/sunset.
I am so excited to work with your students and witness all the growth and learning we will be accomplishing together this upcoming year! The JMSA scholars are brilliant, capable, and I feel privileged to be their teacher.
