Meet the Team

Amy Herron

UE/MS Hero's Journey and Science Team Lead

Amy Herron

“You can do it! How can I help?” This is Ms. Amy’s teaching motto. Throughout her undergraduate and graduate school training, she was blessed with some great mentors that taught her the importance of believing in a student’s capabilities, while also providing the tools and assistance they need to be successful. With that stated, she does have high expectations for her students, both academically and behaviorally. No matter what struggles a student may have, growth is always possible! The keys are to be present, have a willing mind, and a teachable spirit.
