Ms. Amy Oppenheim

Hello my name is Amy Oppenheim, and this is my fifth year teaching Preschool at Powhatan Elementary.  Over the years I have been in many different grade levels and have found my calling in preschool.  For the last 14 years I have been working with children ages 3-5 that have amazing talents and gifts.  Originally, I am from Michigan and went to Eastern Michigan University.  Later I got my masters from Marygrove College in Detroit.  I have lived in North Carolina for the last 16 years and have a very inventive, creative, and outgoing son named Cameron.
