About Me

MarauderHi, my name is Amanda Dizinno and I am currently a sophmore at Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  I am orignally from a town in New Jersey called Budd Lake.  I graduated from Mount Olive High School in 2009.  In Jersey, I live with my parents Patty and Rob Diznno, my older brother Matthew, who is a senior at Farleigh Dickinson University, my younger sister Jenna, who is in 8th grade and will be entering a performing arts high school next year, and my grandmother.  We also have a dog named Sadie as well.  Growing up, sports have played huge role in my life.  I started playing soccer when I was 3 years old, softball when I was 7, and basketball when I 8.  I continued to play these three growing up until high school.  I played varsity soccer my freshman year in high school but stopped playing after that.  I played varsity basketball and softball for all four years of high school.  Throughout high school I was actively involved in Student and Class Council, Varsity Club, and was a member of World Language Honor Soceity.  Through the college application process I only applied to two schools and I got into them both; however, the moment I visited Moravian College I knew it was where I wanted to attend.  I applied early decision to Moravian and got recruited to play softball there as well.

At Moravian I am currently playing softball for my second year.  I recieved all conference honors my freshman year.  MoravianSoftball is something that I have always loved doing and is still one of my favorite things to do.  It also helps me with time management a lot because I have less time than most college students, so I have to stay on top of my work.  I am currently doing my second semester of field exeperience and I love every second of it!  I was placed in a kindergarten classroom at first and now I am in a second grade classroom.  Personally, I liked being in the kindergarten class better and I am pretty sure that is the grade I want to teach.

best teacherHere at Moravian I am majoring in elementary education and historical studies.  I think after I graduate I would like to work with lower-level elementary, kindergarten/first grade.  I might even be interested in opening my own day care depending on if I get a job or not.  The reason I wanted to become a teacher is simply because I love to work with kids!  I wanted a career where I can make a difference in someones life and to me, I wanted that life to be a child.  I really admire the innocence that children have.  I have known that I wanted to be a teacher for a long time and I cannot imagine doing something else as a career.
