About Amanda Werner

Amanda has been a passionate teacher for 15 years. She’s worked in a wide range of educational settings teaching students grades 3rd-11th. Amanda worked for a Title I, charter, magnet, and National Blue Ribbon schools. She’s taught many subject areas including English, Drama, ELD/ESL, and Intervention classes.

No matter what type of school, subject, or grade she’s taught, engaging and empowering students has always been at the forefront of her work as an educator and teacher author.

Amanda understands that helping students find their voice is core to being an effective teacher and social justice advocate.

Even with a teacher willing to listen, there are many barriers that exist and hinder movement towards more equitable schools. Amanda has experienced first hand the many problems that exist in K-12 education. Listening to students is only the first step on a long road ahead. Amanda’s website, courses, lesson resources, and podcast are dedicated to supporting teachers and students in this important work for change.
