2nd Grade Teacher
803-810-8700My name is Amanda Garruto. I am originally from Halifax, Massachusetts which is near Plymouth. I am so excited to be teaching second grade this year at Kinard. I have a B.S. from Bridgewater State College in Bridgewater, Massachusetts and an M.Ed. in Elementary Education from Wheelock College in Boston, Massachusetts. This is my 16th year teaching and my 9th year at Kinard. I have taught fourth grade and third grade in both Massachusetts and South Carolina.I pride myself on communication between school and home. I have lots of energy and a postive attitude. I provide a respectful, fun, exciting, and safe environment for children to grow as leaders. I live in Gastonia, North Carolina with my husband, my three old son. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to church and going to sporting events.
