Mrs. Amanda Tanner

Hello!  My name is Mrs. Tanner and this will be my fifth year teaching Art.  I am excited about an amazing year ahead exploring different mediums and working with young artists.  I especially love working with clay!  I previously taught K-8 Art and high school ceramics in the valley.  During my time teaching, I was active in athletics as a cheer and track coach.  

I grew up in Michigan and attended Michigan State University.  I graduated with a B.F.A. in Art Education and was awarded with the Outstanding Senior Award of my graduating class for my academic and community achievements.  I have a love for learning and completed a study abroad program in Australia.  I also completed a yearlong internship teaching K-12 Art while working towards a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Teaching.

I have lived in Arizona for thirteen years and absolutely love it.  I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful children who are also students at LMES that I love spending time with.  I enjoy running with my rescue dog, Pepper, and running races.  I have run several marathons in the past and look forward to adding more medals to my collection in the future. I am happy to be joining the Lone Mountain team.
