Amanda (Bacome) Trecy

My hometown when I was a student was

I graduated in


I studied

Elementary Education

I currently live in

Kissimmee, FL

I am now

a literacy coach at a 6-8 middle school.

Since graduating from Alma

I have gotten married, had two children, moved to Florida, and advanced to a literacy coach.

My Alma education

Guaranteed that I was prepared for the classroom environment and has allowed me to grow as an educator. I know what direction I want to take with my career and being at Alma left me feeling prepared to be in the classroom, and how to approach challenges that may occur. I plan to eventually return to school and get my doctorate degree to eventually become an administrator or professor.

My favorite place(s) on campus included

SAC and my dorm room.

My most vivid/best memory of my time at Alma is

student teaching.
