In her own words . . .


“I believe that the job of a teacher is to create an environment of support so that students can take risks and learn new content as they journey toward their future. I get to be the positive adult that believes in them, cares about them and teaches them to advocate for themselves and their personal success. I create a culture in my Algebra classroom of hard work and hope for what is to come.”


In the words of others . . .


“Amanda is an outstanding teacher because she truly cares about each student as an individual and believes that all students have the ability to be successful. She is not discouraged when students struggle, whether it be with the academic content or with behavior. In every situation, she reminds students that they always have a choice to try and that she is working with them to help them be successful.”

Kimberly Abdul, Northbrook High School teacher

“Mrs. Tysor is successful in the classroom because she truly cares about students and takes time to build relationships with them. She continually strives to find and develop innovative ways to teach her students. Her classroom is probably the best managed classroom that I have observed in my twenty-one years of experience.”

Associate Principal Terry Estes, Northbrook High School
