Mrs. Amber Eakins
My name is Amber Eakins. I am a Special Education Resource Teacher at Union Elementary. This is my fifth year of teaching and my fifth year at Union! I graduated cum laude from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in May of 2013 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Mild/Moderate Special Education. GO BULLDOGS! I love coming to work each day! Teaching has been my calling since I was a very young girl. I love children and truly have a passion for teaching, as well as being an advocate for my students. Every child should be valued and treated with respect. My goal is to help students reach their fullest potential.
"Every student can learn, just not on the same day, or in the same way."
- George Evan
"Fair isn't everyone getting the same thing, fair is everyone getting what they need in order to be successful.”
On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I am extremely blessed to have such wonderful and supportive people in my life. I enjoy every precious second with my beautiful daughter, Raegan, and husband, Kenneth. In my free time, I take pleasure in being creative. I love to paint and have a tiny obsession with photography. I am also a movie buff. Netflix is my best friend. Finally, I have a passion for traveling; it is my goal to see as much of this world as I can in the time I am given.
I have an open door policy. Parents, please feel welcome to come into my classroom anytime. I check my e-mail frequently and that is the best way to reach me. Please NEVER hesitate to get in touch with me with any questions, comments, or concerns.
I look forward to seeing you this school year!
I hope to have many more years of teaching the wonderful students of Union Elementary! :)
