"I'm not telling you it's going to be easy -- I'm telling you it's going to be worth it." -Art WilliamsHello and welcome! My name is Amanda Plocinski and I am very excited to be returning to the 8th grade English classroom after spending the past few years as an Instructional Coach. While school looks very different and is quickly changing for the 2020-21 school year, I look forward to working closely with teachers, students, and parents as we venture into a new way of teaching a learning. This will take patience, grace, and a mindset shift on behalf of all stakeholders. However, I am confident that with open communication and mutual understanding we can design a learning environment that benefits all students.At the link below, you will be redirected to Ms. Plocinski's website. Here you will have access to important information about my experience as a teacher and instructional coach as well as a portfolio of highlights and success stories. All contact information can be found in the "About Me" section.
