About: Amy Williams
- Role : 6th Grade HR | K-5 Music
I knew very early on that I wanted to spend my life working with children. I greatly enjoyed babysitting as a teen and volunteered every summer to teach VBS. I was raised in Hazelwood, MO attending Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Atonement Lutheran School in Florissant, and Hazelwood West High School. In 1994, I received my Bachelors in Education as well as Early Childhood certification from Missouri State University. I went on to work for the Francis Howell School District from 1995 until coming to Messiah in 2005. In 2002, I received a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Lindenwood University as well as K-12 Gifted Education certification. I completed the colloquy program through Concordia University in the fall of 2010. In the summer of 2013, I received my Middle School Science certification.
During my fifteen years at Messiah, I have been a homeroom teacher for kindergarten, first, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grade as well as being the middle school science teacher for the past eight years. I currently help with Messiah’s STEM Club, and Academic Team, and produce the Middle School Musical each year.
My husband, Wade, and I have been Messiah members since 1997. Our sons Ty and Jake (Messiah and LHS alumni) are now a sophomore and junior in college (respectively), and our daughter Jill is a freshman at Francis Howell High School. In my free time I enjoy watching Jill skate with her figure skating team, and hanging out with my boys. I enjoy participating in Messiah’s hand bell choir, digital scrapbooking, cooking, and travelling with family. I feel blessed to have had the privilege to watch and be part of the growth and changes of Messiah and its day school over the years and feel doubly blessed to be part of this team of professional church workers. Each new school year I am filled with excitement and joy, ready to use my gifts and talents to help the students of Messiah grow closer to their Savior, Jesus Christ, who gives them the strength to work hard and reach their full academic potential.Learn About 8th Grade
