Mrs. Amanda Bell

A message from Mrs. Bell: I’m excited for this new adventure and learning from everyone in the Sacred Heart family.

Mrs. Amanda Bell will be the librarian for the rest of the 2017-2018 school year. She is the sister of Mrs. Emily Good, our school guidance counselor. Mrs. Bell grew up in Lancaster County and graduated from Ephrata Senior High School. She double majored in Biology and Environmental Science from Kutztown University. After college, Mrs. Bell worked for an environmental construction company and learned the importance of ground water monitoring and remediation. After that, she spent almost a decade working at Bristol-Myers Squibb pharmaceuticals. During her time there, Mrs. Bell learned amazing analytical techniques, laboratory automation, and new software systems. Once she learned those, Mrs. Bell was able to train and mentor various groups of people. She discovered a love of teaching while helping people and working with them to learn these new skills.

Her husband’s career recently brought her family back to Lancaster County. They are still settling into their new home where they are raising their two children and their adopted dog. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, exercising, painting and having fun with family and friends.
