Welcome to Northside Elementary School! I am Amanda Hendrix, the media specialist. This is my twentieth year in education. I am a native of Carrollton, Georgia. My husband, Scott and I have been married for 23 years. We have two sons: Landon, 20 and Grant, 16. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and received my gifted certification from Valdosta State University. I obtained my Master's degree in Media and Technology from Jacksonville State University. In 2009, I received a Specialist degree in Instructional Leadership from Nova University. I consider the opportunity to serve the community of Cedartown and its youth a great honor!
Teaching is an honorable and rewarding occupation. I believe teachers are role models and mentors for students. As teachers, we have the opportunity to aid students in growing into extraordinary people. Students are the future of our scociety; therefore, it is essential for teachers to educate, motivate and inspire all students to aim high and be the best.
