Bio

My name is Amy Arend.  I have lived in Winslow for 17 years.  My husband is currently the Police Lieutenant at the Winslow Police Department.  I have four great kids, one who graduated last year and one who will graduate this year.  I'm also excited that my twins will be starting at Winslow High School this year. 

I grew up in Page, Arizona and loved spending my summers on Lake Powell.  I enjoy hunting and fishing and spending time with my family outdoors.  But I'm also a home body and really enjoy staying home with my family as well. 

I began my career at Winslow High School as an Aid in the High Needs Classroom here at Winslow High School.  After a year, I was asked to go into regular classrooms and help students as an Inclusion Aid.  I loved this job and loved working with students in all subjects.  The following year I asked to run the Academic Lab upstairs where I had the opportunity to help students with every subject as they worked on the A+ system and while the majority of my students tried to earn back credit from classes they had deficiencies in.  Since A+ was fairly new here, I was happy to learn the system and have trained many staff on how to use this program.  TWo years ago, I was even asked to Present at a conference on Online Learning and what made our programs so successful.

For the last 5 years, I have continued to work with the students in Academic Lab, but have also added 3 periods of Senior Economics.  I love this part of my job, because I get to work with Seniors and help them prepare for l life right after High School.  I love teaching them skills they'll need to be successful, such as how to budget and how to interview.  We have a lot of fun getting to know each other and the best part is when students come back to visit and tell me how much they learned in my classroom, and how much they use the skills I taught them. 

I'm excited to see what this year holds for me and for my students at Winslow High School.
