Amanda Broton continues her third year as the Upper Elementary Director. She developed a deep appreciation for Montessori as a teenager when her family hosted a Montessori teacher trainee. Since then, she acquired her Bachelor’s Degree from Webster University in Math and Education. Amanda studied in Thailand for a summer, and taught high school math for six years in the St. Louis area. She received her Upper Elementary Montessori Certification from NAMC in 2015. She is excited to be back at the freshly renovated Hill House with them again this year! Amanda is from San Diego, CA and recently got married to her wife there this past summer. Amanda doesn't have children yet but has her hands full with two dogs and two cats at home!
