Mrs. Amanda Dekoekkoek

Hello families! I am beyond excited to be part of your child’s journey this year. I am in my 2nd year teaching with this being my 1st year at Meridian Ranch Elementary School. I have my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s degree in Teacher Leadership. I hope to bring a sense of family and mutual respect to my classroom. I like being silly, dancing, and reading to the kiddos. You will soon see that I am obsessed with stamps and stickers!!

Aside from teaching, my family is my everything. I have a 12-year-old son (Jaxon) and a cat named Marvel. We really enjoy going to the movies and going out to eat- Red Robin and Chili’s is our favorite!

I am always open to chat via email, so please reach out if you have questions for me.
