- Community Schools
My name is Amanda Wise, and I am very excited to work with the students and families at Niwot Elementary.
I have been teaching for more than 20 years, of which half has been in gifted education. Gifted education is my passion and I take the needs of gifted students very seriously. I am an active part of gifted programming for the district and a member of the Twice Exceptional Cadre for SVVSD. I hold a Masters Degree in Education with a focus on technology in the classroom.
2019 is a year of change for me: I am starting this amazing journey at Niwot after leaving a school I helped open over a decade ago, I am getting married, increasing my family by three kids, a dog, and nearly a million new relatives, and bought a new (old) house in Old Town Longmont. Family is a huge part of my life, Rob and I have five adult kids who we love to spend time with. I also garden, renovate our home, travel, bike, hike, read, and hang out with my dogs. Any chance I get I am at a Rockies game cheering the home team.
I am so looking forward to being a part of the Niwot Elementary community!
