Bio

My name is Amy Ginn and I teach Eighth Science and Language Arts.  When I first started teaching, my good friend and I decided we would give it five years and then move on to something bigger and better.  We had no idea what we were getting into.  Now, twenty-three years and thousands of kids later,  I do believe I stayed in the right profession.  And I am pretty sure she would say the same.  There are very few places I can go without seeing a familiar face or hearing a friendly voice saying, "Hi Mrs. Ginn!  Do you remember me?"  And...most of the time, I do!"  It's pretty heart-warming when these kids who are all grown up still remember me.  

I am very happily married and we have two beautiful daughters.  I feel honored to teach in the same school system from which my husband and I both graduated.  What's really cool is cheering along with our daughters for the same team we cheered for years ago.  

It has been quite a ride so far, and I have seen so many different perspectives on life from each new generation.  I guess my favorite part of teaching is really getting to know my kids, how they think, what they love and hate, and what thier hopes and dreams are for the future.  This relationship makes such a difference in how they learn and benefits me as well. It has been a very successful teaching stategy and in many ways a personal blessing.  So, despite my initial ideas of what being a teacher really was, I will continue to move on to something bigger and better right inside my classroom, as each new group of kids brings innovative and interesting ways to see life, and we continue to learn together!
