Welcome! My name is Amy Spurlock and I'm a first grade teacher. I have been teaching first grade for 19 years. I have been at Cordley Elementary for 16 years and began my teaching career at Centennial Elementary School. I attended Centennial Elementary School, Central Junior High, and Lawrence High School. I graduated from Garden City Community College with an Associates Degree in Education and was on a basketball scholarship. I received my Bachelors Degree in Education from the University of Kansas, have a Master's Degree in Reading(Reading Specialist), along with an ESL Endorsement both from the University of Kansas. ROCK CHALK!
Outside of school, I am an avid sports fan! I love college basketball, football, and enjoy watching the Royals. I love spending time with my family and friends. I also receive great joy in working with young children and youth in my church. I enjoy playing sports, exercising, hiking, biking, and traveling. One of life's greatest blessings for me is being an auntie! Spending time and investing in my nieces and nephew's life is priceless.
Cordley is a wonderful place to teach. I love building relationships with children and watching them grow. The children are our future and the investment in their lives is very rewarding. I enjoy all the challenges that come with teaching and helping children achieve their potential. Thank you parents for your support and I look forward to working together and giving your child a fantastic and successful first grade year.
