Welcome to first grade for the 2023-2024 school year!


    I am Amanda McDanold and I am excited for the new school year in first grade!  This will be my 7th year of teaching and I am looking forward to another great year in first grade.

    I graduated from the University of Montana with a degree in elementary education and I also have received my Masters in Science in 2020.  I have lived in Missoula for about 16 years now, so this is home!  I try to be outside as much as possible and bring a positive and adventurous spirit to everything we do!

    This is going to be a great school year full of fun and engaging hands-on learning and I'm excited to be able to share it with you and your family!  


     Please feel free to contact me at anytime with any questions or concerns.
