Amanda Cox

6th grade Math/Science Lead

I am Amanda Cox and I will be the 6th grade Math/Science Lead at Marce Herz this year. This is my 23rd year in education. I taught for ten years at Eagle Valley Middle School in Carson City. I then transferred to Washoe County and taught one year of K-4 special ed at Hunsberger. This is when I learned that I prefer the older kiddos. I have been in the regular sixth grade class ever since. I was born in southern California, but moved to Carson City when I was 5. I have lived in either Reno or Carson ever since. I went to UNR to get my BS and Grand Canyon University for my masters. I am nationally board certified, and in the process of renewing. I have been married for 13 years and have two stepdaughters.  My husband and I have two dogs. We have property at Lake Davis and spend a lot of time camping, reading, hiking, kayaking, fishing (well he does) there in the summer/fall. In the winter we love to snowshoe. I love sports, but football is my FAVORITE. I am a huge Patriots fan- I have been since I was in 6th grade and Doug Flutie was their quarterback. I am still dealing with Brady and Gronk going to Tampa Bay. I won’t lie, it has been hard on me.

Hello! My Name is Danielle Adkins, and I will be teaching 6th grade ELA/Social Studies this year. This will be my 4th year teaching, with all 4 having been in 6th grade. Prior to my time in education I was a corporate recruiter and Staffing Office Manager in Dallas. I was born and raised in Prescott, Arizona and am one of 7 kids.

I LOVE my decision to move into education and know that my happy place is in the classroom.
