Mrs. Amanda Kingsmore
My name is Amanda Kingsmore. I am an art teacher for 6th - 8th graders at McCracken Middle School. The 2018-2019 school year begins my 21st year of teaching. This is my 2nd year at McCracken Middle School. My background is a bit diverse. I received a BA in Mass Communications and a minor in Art from Winthrop Universtiy. I worked in that field for about five years and then received a Masters in Education from Converse College. My teaching experience consists of five years teaching 6th grade ELA and one year teaching 3rd grade. For the last 15 years I have taught middle school art.
My husband John and I just celebrated our 25th anniversary this past summer. We have two children. Abby is 21 years old and a Packaging Engineering major at Clemson University. Jacob is 11 years old and is a 6th grader at McCracken. I enjoy vacations at the beach, creating my own art, gardening, and singing.
