About the Teacher

My name is Shelley Amandolia. I am happily married to a wonderful man named Kenneth.  We have one son Austin who is a junior at Berry College.  I am currently a first and second grade teacher at Carrollton Elementary School.  In 2005, I began working at CES as a paraprofessional.  After completing my dual degree in Early Childhood and Special Education from Mercer University, I began my teaching career.  I received a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education at Piedmont College and my Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction through Lincoln Memorial University.  I am an active member of New Beginnings Church of God in Carrollton.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, fishing and going to the beach.  Teaching children is not just my career, it is my calling in life.  I love devoting my energy into helping children succeed in life.
