Amy Tant is a K5 teacher at Wilson Christian School.

Current position: Kindergarten

Total years teaching: 13 years

First position: Lee Woodard Elementary School

Colleges: University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and East Carolina University

Favorite quote: “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11

Other interesting facts: I love to sing and watch college basketball.

Why I Teach: I love being the first elementary teacher that my students have. I strive to make their first experience in “big” school a positive one. I realize that kindergarten is where the foundation is built that will hopefully foster a lifelong love of reading, and I welcome that challenge. There is nothing like watching a struggling reader finally “get it.” I am also truly blessed to be able to share the love of Christ with my students each day.
