Mrs. Amber Rusk
I am so excited and blessed to be one of the 3rd Grade teachers at Singing Hills Elementary School!!
I am a wife, a proud mother of two (Rilynn and Lane) who also attend Singing Hills, a neighbor to many of you, and I am in LOVE with Singing Hills Elementary School!!! I started substitute teaching at Singing Hills in 2015 and knew this was meant to be my home. I left a 13 year career as a flight attendant at Frontier Airlines to pursue my first dream which is to be an amazing teacher and make a difference every day. I have always kept education near and dear to my heart and substitute taught for 16 years. I took on a career as a flight attendant and pushed teaching to the back burner. I am fortunate to be able to come back to my first dream after 13 great years of flying. I also coached a high school dance team for 14 years and love coaching as well. I am excited to announce I will also be the head spirit coach at Elizabeth High School for the second year :) I hope to see many of my students again a few years after I teach them in 3rd grade when they attend Elizabeth High School or even coach them !!!
I cannot wait to meet my 2019/2020 3rd Grade class !! Be ready to travel, journey, explore and take an adventure through learning to create an unbelievable year of memories with your "Captain"!!! I will challenge and push each of you to do your best and expect nothing less!!!
