    Welcome!

    My name is Amanda Austermann and I joined the Chandler High School Faculty in January of 2022. I am teaching honors 9th grade English, 10th grade English, and AP Literature & Composition. I am happy to be joining the staff here at Chandler and am very excited about all that 2022 will bring to our students.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I graduated from Missouri State University with a Bachelors Degree in English with an emphasis in Education.  I have been teaching for 8 years at another school and have 3 years' experience teaching AP Literature & Composition.  I am currently enrolled in my Masters Program in English with an emphasis in education and plan to complete that program in July of 2022.

    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.
