Amy Klose

I became a National Board Certified Teacher in Adolescent / Young Adulthood Mathematics in 2010. Since achieving my certification, I have attended multiple facilitator training sessions in the Albany, NY region to collaborate on how to best support candidates who are currently on their NBC journey. I currently work with other colleagues in the Far West community and statewide to help more teachers become Nationally Board Certified.

I have been a secondary English teacher for 18 years, teaching English and supporting struggling learners with AIS/RtI services. My background is in secondary English, with a Masters in Diagnostic Reading Instruction. I am a Nationally Board Certified teacher, and provide support for new and current NBCT candidates. I am currently working as an Instructional Support Specialist, having worked originally in Secondary English (Grades 5-12), and am now working to support Secondary RtI/AIS. Teaching workshops allows me to work directly with teachers, helping them grow and advance in their own professional development. I truly believe in teachers supporting other teachers.
