Mrs. Amy Welch

This is my 21st year teaching at Thousand Oaks.  I've taught first, second, and third grades.

I am a mom of 4 boys...yep, FOUR BOYS.  "My Baby" graduated form Johnson in 2020, so this will be our first year without football and/or basketball for many years.

I am a native Floridian. I grew up in Pensacola. I love, love, love the beach.  I visit often as my mom, sisters, and brothers still live there.  Spending time with them is one of my favorite things to do.

I am a graduate of The University of West Florida and a proud Argonaut!  We were the D2 national football champs in 2019.

I love the Florida Gators, New Orleans Saints, Houston Astros, and of course the San Antonio Spurs.  My living room can be a very loud place.

My husband I and love to travel and have recently started visiting national parks. Our country is BEAUTIFUL!

And finally, I love teaching! I really do.  It is the best job in the world!
