Gateway High School English Teacher

Amanda Adams


I love teaching high school English because I can challenge students to think beyond these four walls and provide them with the skills necessary to capture every opportunity they are presented with as they embark on their post high school journey.

About Me

I am a SoCal teacher who has played the violin for 24 years and participated in the Starling-Delay Symposium at the Julliard School of Music. I am currently working on my doctorate degree from Grand Canyon University. In my free time, you can catch me out on my road bike with We Ride 4 cycling club, cooking, or relaxing with my husband and our Puggle, Kai.
