Welcome to the library, Eaton Rockets! My name is Amanda Knies (pronounced "niece"). I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Tennessee. Go Vols!! Also, I have a Master of Education in School Librarianship from East Tennessee State University.
I was born and raised in Roane County, where I currently live with my husband and two children. Previously, I worked for Roane County Schools with special education, K-2 math and literacy intervention, and in the school library. Also, I have taught English as a Second Language courses to elementary age students through an online platform.
I am excited to be joining the Eaton family!! I hope to nurture every student's love of reading, while supporting classroom curricula and incorporating technology.
One of the most important things you can do for your child is read with them!
