Hello, my name is Amanda Salisbury and I teach preschool 3’s and 4’s at Cedar Park’s Bellevue Campus. I have been working for Cedar Park since the fall of 2010 and I have loved every second! Ever since I was young I have loved working with kids. My first job was being a babysitter in my neighborhood. During my college years I worked as a nanny and volunteered with both youth and children’s ministry at my church. Over the years I have developed a passion for watching children learn about God and helping them grow. I love working for Cedar Park because it is more than just a job, it is a calling.
My two favorite Bible verses are Ephesians 2:10 “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has prepared in advance for us to do.” And Psalm 139:14 “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” These two verses remind me that every person is uniquely created by God on purpose with gifts and talents to fulfill their own special purpose that God gave them. Each day I try to encourage students to discover their God given gifts and abilities and how they can use them for God.
Working with preschoolers is never dull or boring. The students are at the age where coming to school is new, fun, and exciting. My goal is to help students develop their academic skills and Christian character in a safe and loving environment.
