Welcome to Mrs. Amadio's Website!

     September of 2017 will mark the beginning of my 19th year teaching, as my career in education started as a leave replacement in the Wantagh School District.  I have been a part of West Babylon's English department since February of 2000, and have truly enjoyed every moment of it.  Each year brings new and exciting challenges.  I received both my undergraduate degree and Masters degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and also hold a certificate in Educational Computing.
     As an educator, my goal is to provide the students with a solid education in English, while preparing them to be college and career ready. I am passionate about the subject matter and strive to convey enthusiasm to the students.  Not only do I love to write, but I also love reading literature and discussing the important themes drawn from works read in class.  It is essential to relate events in literature to the world around us today.
     The majority of my free time is spent with my ten year old son, my five year old son, and my husband.  When I happen to have a free moment, I enjoy reading novels for pleasure.
