Subjects Taught


 I attended Mississippi Delta Community College with a Major in Early Childhood Education. Then, I went to the University of Mississippi with a Major in Musical Theatre. I completed my education at Delta State University majoring in Elementary Education.


I have been a teacher for 14 years, with 10 years of experience in Kindergarten. I have also taught First, Second, and Third grade. During my years of teaching, I have taught in Leland, Greenville, and Tunica.  I absolutely adore teaching Kindergarten!


My name is Amanda Whittington, but my students call me Ms W. I am the proud mother of two amazing boys, Aden and Tate. Aden is on his High School basesball team and a member of the National Honor Society, and Tate is in Spotlight. In addition to my children, I have 2 fur babies, a black lab named Hank, and a cat named Piper. When I am not teaching, I love to watch documentaries and spend time outside with my kids. We love to go to the Farmer's Market!

I am a native of the Mississippi Delta, originally Clarksdale. I have lived in Cleveland, Leland, and Greenville. We moved to Desoto County in 2013. I attend Desoto Hills Baptist Church, where I am in the Celebration Choir and Praise Team.

I can not wait to teach your child this year!  I hope to work closely with each of my parents to ensure the success of each student in my classroom.
