About Me

Amanda Bindel has taught students of all ages using a range of educational philosophies. She's currently a gifted/talented specialist in Round Rock Independent School District in Texas. In the past, she facilitated a play-based preschool co-op and taught English Language Arts and Journalism to middle schoolers. Amanda received her master's degree in education from Texas State University and BS in journalism from Texas A&M University. She was a proud early adopter and integrator of technology in the classroom and in her personal life -- completing much of her graduate degree via distance education courses online. Her graduate specialization in gifted and talented populations, along with her experience team teaching an inclusion class, led to a passionate belief that technology can be an invaluable classroom tool to help teachers effectively reach students with diverse learning needs.
