Be sure to stop by the following classrooms and say hello to our wonderful new teachers!
Amie Potter, Kindergarten
My name is Mrs. Amie Potter. I truly value education and think that learning can be a magical experience for everyone. I have an undergraduate degree from SUNY Fredonia in Elementary Education as well as a MED in Educational Leadership/Administration from VCU. I have six years teaching experience in Richmond and have been lucky enough to intern in classrooms in southern England as well as New York City. I am so excited to be teaching kindergarten at Randolph Elementary. Some of my favorite things to do are traveling, reading, spending time with my family, and playing sports.
Cindy Edmonds, Visual Art
I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from James Madison University and an endorsement in art education, K-12. My family includes husband Peter, daughter Laurel, and 2 rescue animals. I enjoy living in Goochland County, traveling with my family and eating my husband’s wonderful Gelati Celesti Ice Cream! I am very happy to be working with the teachers, students and families at Randolph this year.
Amanda Steeley, Special Education
I spent the past two and a half years teaching at The Faison School for Autism in Richmond. I am very excited to now be working in the Goochland community, where I have lived for the past 4 years. I am inspired by my students and hope that my experience with autism can help students of all needs. I received my undergraduate degree in Mass Communications from VCU and am currently taking graduate courses in Special Education.
Rebecca Raab, English as a Second Language
My name is Rebecca Raab and I have just completed my M.ED in Second Language Learning with a concentration in English as a Second Language. I am so excited and ready to begin working with all the ESOL learners, their parents, and of course the faculty and staff at RES. I am a huge fan of running, kayaking, and swimming. In fact, I am happiest in the middle of a river floating along in my green kayak. I have a great family! My parents and brother live in Halifax County, Virginia, which is about 1.5 hours south of Goochland. I am new to the Richmond area and have already begun to enjoy the beauty and bounty of the James River!
