Hello! My name is Amie Hathaway and I love to teach and work with kids! I am originally from Washington state (Seattle area), but moved to Utah 3 years ago to teach school. I currently work at American Preparatory Academy as a 4th grade teacher, and I absolutely love it! I taught 3rd grade for 5 years prior, as well as other para-educator and substitute work in schools. I earned my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Brigham Young University-Idaho in April 2008, and recently upgraded to Level 2 teaching license here in Utah.
I have lived all across the United States, including Texas, South Dakota, Michigan, Las Vegas, and the Pacific Northwest area. I enjoy spending time with my husband and our adorable beagle. Together we like to go camping and watch movies. I also enjoy playing the piano, listening to music, and spending as much time as possible with family and friends.
I knew when I was 5 years old that teaching was a passion of mine, and I was not wrong! I have a special place in my heart for students who struggle to see the purpose in their education, and I love to help them love learning! My favorite subject to teach is math, and I have a unique way of explaining concepts that are difficult. I look forward to getting to know more students in the future and help them be successful in their academic careers!. “Learning is an experience.
