Site Technology Coordinator

Amanda Calkins 

Greetings Vail family! I am the Site Technology Coordinator and Computer Science Specialist teacher here at Copper Ridge.  I am beginning my 6th year in the Vail School District.  My role here allows me to share my passion working with technology and computers with our students during their library specials time.  When not teaching my responsibilities include managing and maintaining all forms of technology here at Copper Ridge.

I have a Masters in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. Prior to teaching 2nd and 3rd graders as an elementary teacher, I was a K-12 substitute and a reading coach.

My husband and I have three children ages seventeen, fourteen and seven years old. My kiddos have been attending school in the Vail district and as a parent I am relieved to know all of their needs are being met with high expectations. As a family, we love traveling, hiking, four-wheeling and boating. Reading and painting are my favorite pastime activities.

I anticipate another wonderful and fruitful year here at Copper Ridge.
