My name is Amanda Maclaren. My husband and I are from Cleveland, TN, but currently live in Hixson with our son (Theodore) and our three dogs (Lily, Percy, Piper). I have worked with children in some capacity for 10 years through babysitting, nannying, The Boys & Girls club, tutoring, and teaching. I graduated in 2019 from Lee University with a degree in Elementary Education and a certificate in ESOL for k-12. I taught ESOL in the classroom for three years, as well as after school tutoring for language learners and online teaching to students in China through VIPKID. I have also tutored adult language learners to prepare for the citizenship assessment. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, traveling and learning about other cultures, studying languages, running, kickboxing, and cooking.
