Mrs. Amanda Cushman, 8th Grade Social Studies

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree and M.Ed. degree from the University of South Alabama. This is my 11th year teaching at Fairhope Middle School. My career has included teaching History at both the middle and high school levels. I have earned honors throughout my teaching experience, including becoming a Disney Teacher of the Year nominee. I am currently a sponsor for the Student Government Association at Fairhope Middle.  
My educational philosophy has always been to reach the different learning styles of students by varying my teaching strategies. I currently reside in Fairhope with my husband and two children.
