Mrs. Amanda Ankebauer
Spanish Teacher
Mrs. Amanda Ankenbauer will be teaching K-8 Spanish at St. Thomas this year. Graduated from Northern Kentucky University with a BA degree in Communication with a minor in Spanish. I have been speaking Spanish for fifteen years. Planning to attend NKU in the near future to pursue a Master's degree in Education.  I enjoy being active and taking vacations! I have a three-year old son and spending time with my family is my pride and joy. My goal for students learning to speak Spanish is to gain cultural awareness as well as discover the fun in learning a new language that will hopefully build a solid foundation for further education. I hope that tells you a little about me! I look forward to meeting you!
