Amy Larsen - 3rd/4th Grade Teacher
Welcome to third and fourth grade! I am excited and honored to begin my fourth year teaching at Sandpoint Christian School. I have an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in English to Speakers of Other Languages. I also have a Master’s Degree in Literacy. My favorite subjects to teach are Reading, Writing, Science, and Bible! I love to find ways to make literature come to life and I enjoy teaching students about the writer’s craft through reading quality books. I enjoy the hands-on learning that can happen through exploring science and nature. Most importantly, I love teaching about Jesus and helping my students reflect on their relationship with God!
I also believe in having an active classroom where students can connect with our curriculum through active lessons and through moving around the classroom. Students will experience working in centers, working collaboratively with peers, and engaging in whole body activities to help make learning meaningful and fun!
This year is an American history year here at SCS! The 3rd and 4th grade class will delve into Idaho State History as well as an overview of America’s first years. I will also be teaching Japanese once a week to introduce us to a new language and to learn about Japanese culture.
I am a mom of two, Eli and Evie, a pet owner, a pastor’s wife, a traveler, and an admirer of God’s creation. I enjoy kids. I enjoy learning. I enjoy teaching. I feel called to this profession and hope that it is evident in my teaching and in my relationships with my students. I cannot wait for the 2020/2021 school year!
