Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Amy Syracuse-Fifth Grade Teacher
I am Amy Syracuse and I will be your child's 5th grade math teacher. This will be my 8th year teaching, my first four years were in 5th grade at Highland Creek Elementary and I taught 6th grade at Bradley Middle School for two years. Last year was my first year at Patriots. A little about me, I graduated from UNC Charlotte with an undergrad in History. I went back to school to recieve my Graduate Certificate in Elementary Education. I love finding ways to make school fun and interesting for kids and really enjoy challenging them to think.
I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC (one of the originals left). I am a huge sports fan cheering on the Carolina Panthers and Tar Heels basketball. I love being outside, I take full advantage of every season. I love to travel and exprience all the different types of cultures. Although I am your child's math teacher, I will always teach how to be a good person and citizen. I look forward to another great year!
