About Amanda R DeWitt
Amanda has finally figured out how she can change the world for the better--through educating and inspiring young minds. Amanda is a 30 year old student pursuing an Elementary Education degree at UNO with a concentration in STEM or Science Technology Engineering and Math. She chose that concentration because her adviser told her there weren't many women with a STEM endorsement. She also decided she should probably become the president of NE STEM 4U for good measure and is obsessed with encouraging young women that science and math are actually really fun.
Amanda lives in Omaha with her partner Dave, two cats and fully stocked baking cabinet. She once aspired to be a professional blogger, but has settled for monthly posts on this blog and occasional Instagram updates.
FYI--No, she's not "going back to school" because that would require a former degree. No, she's not done with school yet. Yes, she secretly hopes she can use the summers to write books and become as famous as Stephen King. Yes, she is okay with being "just a teacher" in the meantime.
