Mrs. Amanda L. OemckeWelcome to my Teacher Page!!! My name is Amanda Oemcke and I am the Pre-kindergarten teacher at Edwards-Knox! I live locally with my husband Kyle and our furbabies! I have been a staff member at E-K for 7 years; I am super excited about teaching your children this school year. I grew up in DeKalb Junction and graduated from Hermon-DeKalb Central school in 2002. I then went to college and earned degrees from SUNY Canton and Potsdam State University . I earned an Associate's Degree in 2005, a Bachelor's degree in Early childhood Education in 2008, Master's in Literacy Education in 2013. My goal for this year is to provide meaningful instruction that will help your children prepare for Kindergarten. We are pleased to announce that we have received a grant that will expand our program to two full day classrooms. This will provide more time to work with individual students in need of speech and language services as well as build stamina for students as they prepare for the demands of Kindergarten.
