Amanda Kocher, Assistant Director
I absolutely love watching each child that I work with learn and grow. I have been in the Early Childhood field since 2002 and received a degree in Early Childhood from Webster University in 2004. I have taught infants through 1st grade, with a year as an SSD Para-educator. I have also worked as a mentor to new teachers, coordinated fundraising events, planned and organized School-Aged summer camps, and attended Professional Development conferences geared toward early learners. I am trained in Conscious Discipline and was a member of the Character Education Committee at Windsor Elementary.
I am the proud mother of 2 very energetic children. When we're not at school, we love to spend time outdoors, go to the library, have dance parties, and watch movies. We also enjoy visiting our friends and family as often as possible. We are so excited to be a part of the Cadence Academy Family!
