About Amanda Houshour
Hello! My name is Amanda Houshour and I’m the new literacy coach at Niños! I went to college at Michigan State University where I earned a BA in Elementary Education and Special Education. Then I attended Central Michigan University and received an MA in Literacy Instruction. My first teaching experience was for five years in special education in
Lansing, Michigan before moving to Phoenix. I have been in Kyrene for fourteen years, both at the elementary and middle
school levels. I taught a 2/3 multiage class at Esperanza and eighth grade language arts and social studies at Akimel A-al Middle School. Most recently, I was the literacy coach at Paloma Elementary and Waggoner Elementary. Everyone in the Ninos community has been very welcoming. I am proud to
be part of Kyrene de los Niños and I am looking forward to a great year!
