Amanda Gossett

Originally, I graduated with a degree in Horticulture- that’s the art & science of plants- from Berry College. When my children were young, I worked at their preschool and fell in love with teaching. After 10 years as a stay-at-home Mom, I attended Athens State University and earned a degree in Elementary Education. 2020 begins my eighth year at Hazel Green with 1 year as Title I Instructional Assistant, 2 years teaching 4th grade, and 5 years teaching 3rd grade.

I still enjoy gardening & landscaping in my spare time, but I thrive in the classroom where students are excited about learning. So I started my career path thinking I would be tending seedlings and growing plants. But really I’m tending young minds and growing learners.
