Ms. Amanda Gould is going into her tenth year of teaching math and is so excited about the opportunity to be apart of the administration at Weiss. Before coming here, she taught at Pflugerville Middle School for nine years. During her student teaching, she explained that the most important thing she learned was how to be flexible with her students. If they are given the time they need to thoroughly understand concepts and are explained things more than one way, they are more likely to willingly cooperate and study. In her ten years of teaching, Ms.Gould has found one of her favorite parts about instructing is the chance to see her students get an “ah-ha” moment. She likes challenging people and helping them find different approaches and solutions to problems most get stuck on. Her philosophy is that if you follow the rules and accept help, you can easily become a successful student.
