In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or two step back into safety.”Abraham Maslow

I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Glover this year on a variety of projects including creating a school based technology team and presenting to teachers regarding the use of Twitter to strengthen and grow a professional learning network.
Ms. Glover is committed to her career in education and consistently seeks opportunities for improvement. She is reflective in her practice, is innovative in her approach and seeks out support from her ever growing network of professionals.
In my experience working with her, Ms. Glover has been able to identify her own professional needs and those of her colleagues, she seeks out known best practices, and implements those to create innovative solutions.Turner Bartels K-8 | Hillsborough County Public School | 2017

Amanda brings to all of her endeavors energy, enthusiasm, and commitment. Whether in the classroom for her students, or building herself as a teacher leader in the community.
Perhaps the biggest demonstration of her commitment and enthusiasm is in her formation of a Technology Committee at her previous school. She recognized the need for students to enhance their learning in the classroom while learning technological skills they will need beyond fifth grade and took action. With little support from others on site, she managed to bring access to more students and form a cohort of teachers to help ensure the technology is used.
She is self-driven and yet values the ideas and products that can only come from collaboration. Amanda is always looking for ways to help strengthen the education community by sharing her learning on twitter chats, edcamps, and more.
She is a valued teacher of Hillsborough County Public Schools whom deeply cares about student learning. Her combination of intelligence, commitment, perseverance, creativity, and a compassionate character will certainly make her a valuable member of any academic program.Educational Leardership & Professional Development | Hillsborough County Public Schools | 2017
