Resources For Parenting Educators
Welcome Parenting Now's New Director of Training
Hi there! My name is Amanda Hill, and I’m thankful to be a part of the Parenting Now team. I have a passion for working with educators, parents, and families, and I am so thankful that I’ve had the opportunity to do this in a variety of capacities. In addition to being the Director of Training here at Parenting Now, I also teach Child Development courses within the community college and university settings. Prior to teaching at the college level, I taught typically-developing preschoolers, as well as those with special needs. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Child and Adolescent Development and a Master of Education in Teaching and Learning with emphasis in Early Childhood Education.
My spouse and I have two young children, and in mid-2020 we moved from our hometown of San Diego to NW Arkansas. We love that we get to enjoy four seasons and take full advantage of the endless mountain bike trails right in our backyard (literally!). When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time outside with my family.
