    My name is Amanda Austermann and I joined the Chandler High School Faculty in January of 2022. I am teaching AP Literature & Composition, 12th grade English, and in 2023 I became one of the Student Council advisors. I am so excited to be a member of the Chandler team.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I graduated from Missouri State University with a Bachelors Degree in English with an emphasis in Education. I completed my Masters Degree in English Education in 2022 and am happy to be teaching AP as a dual enrollment class. 

    I taught for 8 years in another district and joined Chandler with 4 years' experience teaching AP Literature & Composition. 

    My Educational Philosophy

    I love teaching literature and seeing students find joy in reading. I also am a big believer in having a growth mindset in education, I will push students to revise assignments until they are done well and reward them for their efforts to improve. Every student has the opportunity to be successful in my class. I believe that collaboration builds a greater understanding through exposure to multiple perspectives and love to see students work together on complex projects.
