Mrs. Amanda Cox
Welcome back students and parents, to our 2020 – 2021 school year! My name is Mrs. Amanda Cox and I will be teaching English/Language Arts (ELA) to 8th graders this year. This is my second year at Concord Middle School. This is my third-year teaching overall, and I spent my first-year teaching English at Concord High School.
I am originally from Concord, North Carolina and Cabarrus County. I attended Wolf Meadow Elementary School, JN Fries Middle School, and Jay M. Robinson High School. I did my undergraduate studies at Appalachian State University and University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English with two minors in Children’s Literature and Childhood Studies and American Studies. I am currently working on my Masters of Education at UNCC.
When I am not in my teacher or student role, I spend time with my husband (we just got married in June, which is why there will be some name confusion at the beginning of the school year) and our two dogs, Koko, who is a Black Labrador-Australian Shepherd mix, and Dixie, who is a Blue Tick Coonhound. We like to travel and go camping. I am also a diehard sports fan. Go Dodgers, Rams, UCLA, and Lakers!!!
I know this school year is not what we are all use to, but at least we are all going through it together! We will stay united and be positive with each other throughout the year because it is new for everyone. All of us in the Miner family are ready to help each and every one of you succeed this school year! Do not hesitate to reach out to me if you need something.

It’s is going to be an awesome school year!!!
