Mrs. Amanda Kingsmore

My name is Amanda Kingsmore. I am an art teacher for 6th - 8th graders at McCracken Middle School.  The 2020-21 school year begins my 24th year of teaching.  This is my 4th 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 completed 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 19 years I have taught middle school art. 

My husband John and I just celebrated our 27th anniversary this past summer.  We have two children.  Abby is 23 years old and just graduated from Clemson University this past August.  Jacob is 13 years old and is an 8th grader.
