Mrs. Amanda Pennington

Exceptional Education

Resource Teacher




My name is Amanda Pennington, and I could not be more excited to be working with the fourth and fifth graders at Cahaba Elementary this year! This is my fourth year in Trussville City Schools, but it is my tenth year teaching. After graduating from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education and Alabama Teaching Certificates in the areas of Special Education, Elementary Education, and Early Childhood Education, I began my teaching career in a long-term sub position in Jefferson County. Shortly after, I transferred to Shelby County where I worked as an exceptional education teacher as well as a kindergarten teacher. I live with my husband Blake, and our two daughters, Mia and Maci. I love spending time with my sweet family, hiking, running, biking, and reading.
