Hello! My name is Amanda Field. I have been teaching in the Waterloo school district for one year. The 2017-18 school year will be my sophomore year in our district.
My Master's degree is in Teaching of Writing. I also hold a post-baccalaureate certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language. I earned my Master's and Bachelor's degrees, as well as my TESL certificate, from Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville.
While earning my Master's, I taught English 101 and 102 at SIUE. I have also taught at the following institutions: Rend Lake College, Brown Mackie College, Vatterott College, Highland High School (and the Highland school district), and the East St. Louis Higher Education Center. I have been teaching since 2010. I have taught a range of classes from developmental college writing courses to dual-credit/university level English courses. I have worked with students age five and up. ....and I do mean up! I have experience with high school, university, and adult learners. I also have experience with native and non-native speakers of English.
I am originally from Springfield, Illinois. I currently live in St. Louis, Missouri. I primarily teach senior and junior level courses. I am excited for the upcoming school year!
