Welcome students, families, and friends!
My name is Amanda VanNess and this will be my first year teaching second grade at Whitehouse Primary.
I live in Perrysburg with my husband, Drew, and our son, Parker. Life has gotten busy with a toddler, but it's never been better!
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master's of Education in Reading, both from BGSU (Go Falcons!).
Before coming to Anthony Wayne Schools, I taught second grade and kindergarten in Toledo Public Schools. At Anthony Wayne, I have taught kindergarten at Monclova, Title I reading and math intervention classes at Whitehouse, and second grade at Waterville.
My mission every school year is to create a classroom environment where students continue their journey to becoming life-long learners and motivated readers. Although students enter second grade with a wide range of abilities, every student will be challenged.
This is going to be a magnificent school year!
