Miss Amanda Walter « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

Welcome! My name is Amanda Walter and this is my second year teaching at The Villages Charter High School. I received my MA in Shakespeare Studies from the University of Birmingham in Birmingham, England and my BA in American and English Literature from the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida. Outside of class I spend my time training for triathlons and marathons, reading, travelling, and hanging out with my awesome dog Amelie.

My Philosophy “Education is all a matter of building bridges.” –Ralph Ellison

I believe it is my role as a teacher to be a guide, positive role model, and expert in the curriculum I am teaching. It is my duty to assist in “building bridges” for students’ educational journeys. I have high expectations for the students in my class. I expect the students to achieve academically to their fullest potential. I expect students to contribute in a positive manner to my classroom.  I am truly looking forward to an exciting, yet academically challenging year.

Class Supply List

Pens-Black or blue ink only.

Plenty of college rule paper.

3 ring binder-You may share your binder with another class, or you may leave your notebook in the cabinets in my classroom.

300 3" X 5" Index Cards-These cards may be lined or unlined. These will be used for  weekly vocabulary lessons. Students will not be required to have all the index cards at the beginning of the year; however, I would suggest keeping the full amount in the classroom to avoid being unprepared for class.

A rubber band, or some other form of keeping notecards together and organized.

Flash drive-Your flash drive is an important piece of your success in my class. You may want to purchase a flash drive that you can attach to your keys, or your backpack to prevent loss of your work. Remember, always save your work to multiple locations!

Moodle Account

Internet access- If you do not have access to the internet the Media Center is open before and after school.

Access to Microsoft Word or a similar program-Please be advised that files that cannot be opened due to incompatibility will be counted late. Please make sure your document can be opened on a school computer to avoid this issue.
