3rd Grade

Amanda Fisher


My name is Amanda Fisher and I am the 3rd Grade Literacy Teacher at Carson. I earned my degree in Natural Resources, Recreation and Tourism at Colorado State University and my first years in education were leading outdoor programs on the environment. I later earned my teaching certificate from Humboldt State University.

This is my 17th year teaching and my 10th year at Carson. I feel so grateful to be part of this community!

When I am not at Carson, I enjoy spending time with my family.  I recently got married, and together we have five children!  We love to read, play games, go for hikes in the mountains and ski! We are so lucky to live in beautiful Colorado!

In 2014, I decided that I wanted to have a career where I felt I made a difference so I began teaching students who were below grade level in math. It was the most exhausting but rewarding job I ever had so I decided to make the leap from accounting to teaching. In 2015, I applied and was accepted to the Denver Teacher Residency Program. In 2016, I graduated from the University of Denver with a Masters Degree in Education.

I have two children Theo, age 19, and Nate, age 16. In my spare time I enjoy playing tennis, hiking, skiing, gardening, traveling and spending time with my family and friends.
