Amanda Raymond, School Director

I joined the Cadence Academy family in May 2014. I grew up in Montgomery County, MD, right outside of DC. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and began working with children in high school. I pursued a degree in early childhood education and taught preschool for 10 years. In 2004 I was promoted to Director and then a Manager within the same company. In April of 2014, my husband and I moved to Myrtle Beach and I joined the Cadence Academy family in May 2014. I am truly grateful to have the opportunity to work with such amazing teachers, children and families!

I have been a part of the Cadence family since January 2015. I am originally from NJ where I pursued a degree in education and US studies. I have taught, served as a curriculum specialist, and managed for 14 years. I moved to Myrtle Beach with my family in 2011 and continued my career in education. I look forward to a rewarding future with this great company.

I was born on the island of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. I am married with three children. I have worked with young children for over thirty years and love what I do. I have my certificate in Early Childhood Education, am CPR and First Aid certified and have received countless hours of additional trainings in the field. I have been part of the Cadence family for 10 years and truly enjoy working with my toddlers. I am excited to begin this incredible journey of loving, laughing and learning with your family!
