Mrs. Amanda Williams
My name is Erin Amanda Williams. Although a lovely name, I have never used the name Erin. I have been called Amanda, or affectionately "Mandy", by my family my entire life. I was born in Bogalusa where I was raised riding horses and playing in the woods. I have a big family whom I adore spending time with. I am married with one daughter, Maggie, two step-sons, Blake and Eric, and two vivacious rescue pups, Molly and Jack. I attended Southeastern Louisiana University and later Troy University in Troy, Alabama for my undergraduate degree. After working as a social worker in Illinois for several years, I returned to Louisiana and Southeastern Louisiana University where I earned a Masters of Arts in Teaching.
I have been teaching since 2012 and have loved every minute of it! Previous to finding a home at Woodland Park Magnet School I worked at D.C. Reeves in Ponchatoula.
Some of my favorite things include painting (anything creative in general really), reading, traveling, spending time with my family, and watching movies. I love meeting new people, laughing, and challenging myself. I am looking forward to this year with hope and enthusiasm!
