Hi! My name is Amy Freedman and I was born and raised in Laredo, TX, but have lived here in San Antonio for 15 years now. This is also how long my husband and I have been married. :)
I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2000 with a degree in English, and received my teaching certification in Reading/Language Arts, grades 4-8, in 2004. I taught 7th grade reading at Bush Middle School from 2006 to 2013. I left to spend some extra time with my children...my daughter Riley recently turned 11 and my son Paxton will be 8 in January. The opportunity to go back to Bush arose in January of 2016, and I would have been crazy not to take it.
I finished my Master's degree in Library Science from the University of North Texas last summer. You're NEVER too old to learn something new!
In January of this year (2020), I was hired to be the new librarian here at Hidden Forest ES, and it has been a fabulous adventure ever since!
I look forward to sharing my love of reading with my students and can't wait to get to know each of them better!
