During my 23 years of teaching, I have taught at Arlington Elementary, Sadler Elementary, and New Hope Elementary. This area is absolutely beautiful and I am glad to call it home with my husband and daughter. Some things I enjoy in my spare time are reading, cooking, and gardening. Teaching is my passion and I love to help students grow to their best potential.

Mrs. Amanda Scoggins

Hello my name is Amanda Scoggins, I am thrilled to get this year started! I am eager to get to know each of my students, and work with their families to help grow each student as a learner.

This is my third year of teaching. I am very excited to call New Hope my home! Before I came to New Hope I student taught at Cherryville Elementary School in the first grade. Also, I substituted in Gaston County Schools. I have worked with grades Kindergarten through 12th grade. I enjoy working with students, and watching each of my students’ grow and flourish in the classroom.

Here is some background information about me. I am a native of Hamlin, New York. I moved to North Carolina when I was 14 years old. I graduated from Forestview High School in Gastonia in 2006. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for almost six years. I love spending time with family and friends. In my spare time I love to paint and travel around North Carolina to visit many different historical sites. I have graduated from Gardner- Webb University in 2010, with a degree in Psychology. After I graduated, I started working in Gaston County schools as a substitute teacher. While, I was substituting, I fell in love with teaching. I decided to go back to school to get my teaching licensure. I am very excited to have the opportunity to be your child’s teacher! Throughout my life, I have had a variety of experiences that have helped me to prepare for this experience.

This year expect a high energy learning environment, with rigorous learning going on at all times. Students will be engaged in hands on inquiry based lessons created to teach all of the fourth grade content. I will get to know each student as best as I can, to help create a positive and encouraging environment. In the classroom the students, will be challenged, motivated, and encouraged.

I am grateful to be a teacher at New Hope! I moved to Belmont three years ago after spending eleven years in Indiana.  During my time in Indiana I served as a special education assistant as well as a K-4 library supervisor and first grade teacher. 

I grew up in upstate South Carolina, five minutes from Death Valley Stadium at Clemson University (so I'm not a bandwagon fan, been crazy about Clemson since birth :)! My husband and I have two "grown" children, Hannah and Caleb. Hannah is in her final year at the University of Louisville, studying to be an art therapist. Caleb lives with us and currently works in Gastonia manufacturing pool liners. In my free time I enjoy watching college football, hiking, kayaking, participating in the worship team at our church, and volunteering with non-profit and mission organizations.
