Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Amanda Jenkins. I was born and raised in Fresno, California. I completed my undergraduate and graduate work in Washington, DC. I studied Psychology and Administration of Justice at Howard University – go Bison! I have a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from American University. This is my fourth year teaching 5th grade, but 10th year in the classroom as I’ve taught on the collegiate level and one year in second grade. I enjoy traveling, building furniture, shopping, and most thrill-seeking adventures. I reside in Fuquay- Varina with my husband Harvey, our three boys, Harvey, Landry, and Brantley (who all attend Lincoln-Heights) and our baby girl Alyx who just recently turned 1. I am excited about the opportunity for my family and me to grow with the Lincoln Heights community.
