Amy Spunaugle

Third Grade Teacher


Ms. Spunaugle's Bio

Born and raised in Portland Oregon, the North Coast was our family’s vacation destination.  Camping at Fort Stevens several

times each summer was our escape to family fun and endless bike rides. My dream was to retire on the North Coast. After

teaching and coaching in Portland Public Schools for 18 years, I decided to move the timetable of my dream up a bit.  I was

ecstatic, four years ago, when Seaside Schools hired me as a 3rd grade teacher.  My spouse and I sold our home in Portland

and moved to Astoria.  I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade along with coaching teachers and being a math specialist.  I have

loved all of my positions in education but 5 years ago I realized that my favorite part of education was teaching kids.  I moved

from a position coaching teachers and went back into the classroom.  I simply love teaching kids!!  I live for the moment my

students learn to think critically and form their own opinions.  I love to watch kids think and grow.
