Ms. Amanda James

 My name is Amanda James and I grew up in Napa, California. Immediately after high school I attended Cuesta Junior College in San Luis Obispo, California. After that I moved onto Biola University where I earned my bachelors degree in Communication Studies. I graduated from Biola in 2008 and began teaching at a daycare and preschool. Then in 2012 I decided to head back to school to get my multiple subject teaching credential through National University. During my student teaching I was able to work with 4th graders and then 1st graders. Once I received my teaching credential I decided to move to Las Vegas, Nevada and I taught 1st grade for 2 years. In those first 2 years of teaching I continued with my education and earned my Masters in Education: Specializing in Best Practices from National University. In 2017 I moved to San Antonio to be closer to some of my family. This 2018/19 school year is my third year teaching 1st grade here at Royal Ridge.
