Why She Loves ABEA:
ABEA is a great opportunity for networking. I am continuously challenged by teachers in this organization. It fosters a collaborative environment across the state in which teachers share the common goal of engaging students.
A Piece of Advice She'd Give a Brand New Business Educator:
Don't get discouraged by the lack of experience you may have in comparison to veteran teachers. Let it motivate you to continuously challenge yourself to be an innovative teacher. Get involved, seek the help of a mentor, and be proactive.
What She Enjoys Outside of Teaching:
I enjoy raising my two year old daughter, sewing, children/teen ministries, cuddling with my five year old lab, Bogart, cheering on the Crimson Tide, and attempting to play golf with my husband.
Amber is also an active member of NBEA, where she has served as a session presenter at the Annual Convention.
