Ms. Amanda Painter-Ingham


My name is Amanda Painter-Ingham and I love being a part of this wonderful community of students, families, and staff at Pinckney Elementary!  I currently teach Kindergarden through 2nd Grade students who receive Special Education.  I have previously taught both 2nd Grade and Special Education in Oklahoma.

A KU graduate, I began my carreer in my husband's hometown of Leeds, England as a Conflict and Mediation Specialist working with young people at risk of homelessness. In 2012 we returned to the US and I entered teaching through Teach for America.  I earned my masters in education through Johns Hopkins University.

In addition to teaching, I am the mama of two Pinckney boys and a baby girl. My husband is currently working on his doctorate in Molecular Biology at KU.

I am looking forward to a fantastic school year!
