Mrs. Amanda Burks

I grew up in a small town in Tenessee.  In 2004, I married my precious husband, Jared and he moved me to Alabaster, Alabama!  We are members of Westwood Baptist Church.  We have been blessed with two amazing little boys!  Cooper is 10,and Hudson is 5.  They keep us crazy busy and happier than we could ever imagine!  In my free time, I love to spend time with my boys~usually at a baseball field!  I also enjoy reading, gardening, and traveling with my family. We also love to watch college football!  Since I grew up as a Tennessee Vols fan, football season gets interesting with my Alabama boys!    

My first teaching job was teaching alongside of my own Kindergarten teacher!  I taught for 3 years at Collinwood Elementary School, where I attended school as a child!  It was a wonderful experience.  After getting married, my husband and I moved to Alabaster and began teaching at Valley Elementary School in Pelham.  I taught there for 10 years.  After wanting to teach in the community where I live, and where my own children attend school, I accepted a position at Creek View!  This is my eighteenth year of teaching!
