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.
