It has been said, "Teachers that love teaching, teach little children to love learning." This quote has driven my professional career. I have loved teaching at South Fork Elementary for the last two years. I truly believe this philosophy stems from growing up in California with my parents who were firm believers in the love for learning. They were constantly encouraging us to learn something each day whether or not we were in the classroom. They encouraged sports, music, art, and academics. They taught me to love being outside whether I am riding a dirtbike, fishing, or just playing a game of softball. They taught me to love to create. 

Now I have a love of sharing those things in my classroom. I encourage all my students to learn something new each day.

My name is Amanda Dye. I grew up in Nevada until I was 16 when I moved to Oregon. While living in Nevada I lived on a small farm with my dad where I learned what life is like on a small farm. My favorite animals were my horse and my dogs. I finished high school in Oregon then attended college at Western Oregon University. While attending WOU I received a degree in psychology and my elementary teaching license. 

I accepted a job in Jerome, ID teaching 3rd grade. Shortly after moving to Idaho I met my husband Spencer. We got married in June 2017 which brought me to Rexburg, ID accepting a job at South Fork Elementary in 3rd grade.

My husband and I have a beautiful little girl who we love spending time with and is an amazing addition to our family. We also have two dogs that we take almost everywhere. My family and I love doing things outside such as quad riding, camping, and hiking.
