Welcome to a new school year! I am Mrs. Amanda Woitas, and I have the amazing job of teaching and connecting with St. Mary’s wonderful students and their families. While this year may look different, and it comes with many uncertainties, it does not diminish the love that I have for each member of our St. Mary’s family. It, in fact challenges me to become more creative in course delivery and getting to know each individual. Without challenges one cannot change and grow. Since starting my teaching career in 2007 there have been many changes and challenges, and through them I have grown and changed with them. I will challenge my classes to make note of the large and small blessings in each day, and to lift each other up in solidarity.
In school you will find me in Health and Religion, Art, Drama, and PED. I have a great passion for creating beautiful things and for helping others do the same. As well as to be active and having fun on a court, or a field. My list of what I do in school usually extends to student council, drama club, and with great hope that it may continue into this year.
While away from school my favorite activities include being with my family (My husband and my two beautiful children), playing slo-pitch and ball hockey, walking with my dogs, and creating art. Along with my faith, I have a great love for nature and will often use it to feel calm, well, and grounded.
I am very excited to connect with you all.
