Hello, my name is Amanda Mayo and I am the new 3rd and 4th grade Special Education Teacher at Chester-Andover Elementary School. I received my bachelor’s degree from Keene State College in English Literature and my post-baccalaureate degree in General Special Education from Granite State College. 

During my time at Keene State College I was introduced to the many benefits of children’s literature, which lead me to form a passion for the many different genres. I was asked to participate in Keene State Colleges annual Children’s Literature Festival during my time there and look forward to going back each year to learn about new ways to incorporate this form of literature into the classroom. 

I live in Westminster, VT with my husband Jon and our two dogs Pita and Copper. In my spare time I love to read, write, cook, visit local restaurants, and spend time with family and friends.
