Mrs. Amanda Rossi
My desire to teach began at a very young age. My dream was achieved when I graduated from Elmhurst College in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education with middle school endorsements in language arts, social studies, and science. In 2010, I completed my master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from National-Louis University. I have since taken several challenging graduate courses to enhance my professional development and am currently working on my Library Information Specialist Endorsement at Chicago State University.
I'm so excited to be at Southbury Elementary as the Library Media Specialist for this school year. Previously, I taught 6th grade ELA at Traughber Jr. High. This is my 16th year in education, and I am still passionate about instilling a love of reading in children!
