Amanda Flake is the current music specialist, and next year she will teach 1st grade. She said, “I love all types of music, so it made me happy to teach music every day, but my favorite part of my job was getting to know every student in the school. I will really miss being the music specialist, but I am excited to teach 1st grade because I love the magic that comes with teaching young children. My favorite part of teaching is thinking of ways to make things more fun and active. I think 1st grade will be a good fit for me.” Mrs. Flake graduated from BYU with her degree in Elementary Education and also studied music and Spanish. She and her husband live in Mapleton and have 5 kids who have all attended Hobble Creek. She loves traveling, reading, hiking, playing the piano, eating Thai food, and spending time with her family. Her favorite colors are teal and purple, and she loves accessories, especially colorful scarves. Some of her favorite book series are Fancy Nancy, The Little House on the Prairie, Fablehaven, The Candy Shop Wars, Harry Potter, and The Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson.
We are lucky to have such amazing the dedicated teachers here at Hobble Creek, thanks for making our school great Mrs. Flake!
