Ms. Amanda Townsend

Hello Horizon! I am excited to go into my 9th year of teaching and my first in Madison City. This year is starting off different for everyone, but I know we will crush our goals together. I was born in Lexington, Kentucky (Wildcat fan for life). I grew up in many places, but call Wilmington, North Carolina home. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a teacher. My mother is in education and I had some fabulous elementary teachers that had passion and drive, which hooked me to learning. I graduated with a Bachelors in Elementary Education from UNCW and Masters in Curriculum Instruction from American College of Educators. I started teaching in North Carolina, and then moved overseas. I taught in the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Hawaii, Texas and now Alabama. 


My two children reside with me here in Madison. My daughter Caylee is going into 3rd grade, and my son Darren into 1st grade. As a family we enjoy traveling, kayaking, hiking, sports and game night.  We are all ready for the new year and can’t wait to meet you!
