Mrs. Amy Avants
I am excited to be a Jack Patriot! This is my first year at Jack, but my eighth year teaching. I have taught all core subjects in 5th grade for the past seven years. This year, I’m thrilled to be teaching 5th grade in my two favorite subjects—Math and Science.
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Oklahoma Baptist University where I majored in Elementary Education and minored in Religion. Before pursuing my love for teaching, I served as the Elementary Minister for Green Acres Baptist Church and as an Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of East Texas.
I have had a passion for education since I was young. I love empowering students to reach their full potential. I love learning, growing, teaching, and encouraging students on a daily basis.
