Welcome to First Grade!
Hello! My name is Amanda Mahmood. The 2022-2023 school year will be my fifth year at Wildwood. I also taught kindergarten and first grade for 12 years in South Washington County. Teaching brings me so much joy and is so rewarding to see the growth made throughout the year!
A little about me, I grew up in Cottage Grove and enjoyed teaching where I went to school. Today I live in Lake Elmo with my husband and three kids. We also have a silly one year old chocolate lab named Wesson. My family is big into hockey and lacrosse and love spending time outdoors. I also love to learn and teach and I can’t wait to share my passion for learning with my students! My favorite part about teaching first grade is helping students learn to read.
A little about my classroom, we have a sports theme. One fun thing we do is have a special all-star of the day. Throughout the year my students get to do different activities on these special days. These activities help our class get to know one another and grow as a strong team of learners!
I look forward to meeting my first graders! We are going to have an All-Star Year!
