    Welcome to 4th Grade!!!

    Hello!  My name is Amanda Strange and I am thrilled to introduce myself as your child’s teacher this year!


    A little about me:  I have taught children since 1998, beginning with pre-school students, Kindergarten for 11 years and this is my second year in 4th grade.  My childhood was spent in LaRue County, where I graduated high school.  I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Education from Midway College.  This is my third year at Heartland Elementary, A.K.A. Home Away from Home. 

    I live with my husband of 22 years and my daughter on a small farm here in Hardin County.  Together we raise a few cattle and enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities.


    On this page:  You will find information about what we do in 4th grade and how we do it.
