BA English University of North Carolina at Wilmington
Amanda Smith is the freshman and sophomore English teacher, Service-Learning Coordinator, Junior Civitan advisor, CEC Runs/WoD advisor, and co-advisor for yoga club at Craven Early College.
Service is a major theme in her classroom, and as such her students organize and participate in several service projects each semester to benefit our school family and the community as a whole.
Here at CEC, English II Honors has been both a stand-alone course, integrated course with American History I/II, and integrated with Biology, so students should expect some days to cross curriculums.
Before moving to New Bern she previously earned her BA in English and teaching license from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington as a North Carolina Teacher Fellow.
She has taught English I/I Honors, English II Honors, English III/III Honors, and worked with AP Literature and Occupational English courses.
Outside the classroom, she currently resides with her two cats and enjoys teaching and practicing yoga, CrossFit, drinking a good cup of coffee or tea, and learning to paddleboard.
