Ms. Amanda Monzak- Library

Hello, my name is Amanda Monzak.  I currently teach library and help out with Title One reading.  I grew up in South Park.  I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education at Penn State University. WE ARE!!  After I graduated, I substitute taught and went back to school to get my Masters in Reading from California University of Pennsylvania.  I moved to Columbia, Maryland in 2007 and taught 5th grade for one year on Ft. Meade Army base. I began teaching in West Mifflin in 2008.  While teaching at WM, I got my Library Science certification.  I have been moved many times in the past 13 years here in WM.

When I am not at school, I enjoy being my family and friends. I live in Peters Township.  I have a 4-year-old son, Carter. We are always on the go! We are often outside even in the cold!! I love to read and work out.  I also love all kinds of music and enjoy going to concerts. I am super lucky to get to know all of the students at Clara Barton and spend 4 years teaching them all the fantastic things about reading.
