Mrs. Amber Edwards
I am very excited about the upcoming school year and getting to know all of my students. I plan to make math enjoyable, engaging and challenging. I expect my students to come each day ready to work hard and to collaborate with their peers respectfully.
This is my 4th year at Riverwood and my 12th year teaching. I have experience teaching 7th & 8th grade math and science. I attended Christopher Newport University, where I majored in Biology, and was a member of the schools volleyball team. I earned my teaching certificate through East Carolina University's lateral entry program. Since then I earned my National Board Certificate in Early Adolescence Math and my Masters as a math specialist in elementary education from NC State University.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Todd(husband), Russell(son), Bimini(Dog), and I enjoy spending time together outdoors. Specifically, we enjoy fishing near Hatteras, NC or just taking boat rides as a family. In the fall and winter we enjoy taking our black lab "Bimini" dove & duck hunting. Currently, I spend most of my time outdoors with Russell, this summer we spent many days playing at the beach he loves it.
