Whitehouse Independent School District

Avants, Amy » Welcome


I am so excited to be a Whitehouse Wildcat! This is my second year at WISD, and my tenth year teaching. I taught all core subjects in 5th grade for eight years, and I taught math last year. This year, Iā€™m thrilled to be teaching 5th grade math and science--two of my favorite subjects. 


I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Oklahoma Baptist University where I majored in Elementary Education and minored in Religion. Before pursuing my love for teaching, I served as the Elementary Minister for Green Acres Baptist Church and as an Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of East Texas.


I completed my Master's Degree in Learning and Technology from Western Governors University in July of 2020. I'm excited to utilize this knowledge in the classroom!


I have had a passion for education since I was young. I love empowering students to reach their full potential. I love learning, growing, teaching, and encouraging students on a daily basis. ā€‹


While I'm not as school, I enjoy spending quality family time with my husband Brian and two incredible boys, Parker and Turner. We love anything that includes the outdoors and friendly competition. We are active members at GABC. 


I'm looking forward to a great 2020-2021 school year!
