My name is Amanda Honeycutt and I am your K-2 Transition Teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. My excitement truly cannot be contained, as I have been eager to get to this point of being able to teach the children of our future. This is my first year at Rocky Creek Elementary, as well as my first year teaching in general. Prior to taking the steps to get to this point, I worked as a Lead Case Manager/Social Worker for a children's group home in North Georgia, aiding in the safety, well-being, and overall success all foster youth need and deserve. Their education is certainly no different, and in my many years as serving in the Human Services field, a huge portion of ensuring that success was aiding in their academic achievements. In doing this, I become increasingly more passionate about wanting to help youth reach their TRUE academic potential.
I graduated with a minor in Psychology, with a Bachelor's in Human Service and Delivery Administration, from the University of North Georgia in 2016 and served a 2-year internship with Georgia CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate). As a long time advocate for children, I am dedicated to ensuring that, as your child's teacher, we will make strides in the right direction. My door is always open, and the lines of communication are, too. I value parental/guardian concerns and input, and can promise that we will work together to get through these unprecedented times.
