Mrs. Amanda Bordelon
Welcome to 6th & 7th Grade Science! This is my 14th year in education, with this being my sixth year at Fifth Ward. I am as excited as ever to be a part of the Falcon Family and to be teaching the wonderful students here!
I attended the University of New Orleans as a student-athlete, where I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology and served as President of the Golden Key International Honor Society. Upon graduating, I began teaching high school Biology while obtaining my certification through Our Lady of Holy Cross College. I was also fortunate enough to be a Head High School Girls Basketball coach for several years. It is my pleasure to be coaching the Falcons Girls Basketball team this year!
Helping students strive to be the best version of themselves is the driving force that led me to choose education and continues to be a personal goal of mine to this day. Yes, I want to educate children on the topics of science, but my ultimate goal is to motivate students to "Reach for the Stars!"
I look forward to an incredible school year and will work hard to help all students succeed!
