Amanda Young To All Instructors



Co-Director & Teacher


Amanda is a Philadelphia-area native who earned both her B.A. and M.A. in Psychology from Rosemont College in Pennsylvania. She worked as a Kindergarten teaching assistant and a school counselor before she and her husband relocated to Athens in 2007.  Homeschooling felt like a natural decision when their daughter was born, and they have enjoyed this flexible, rewarding lifestyle ever since.

Together with her 13 year old daughter, Amanda volunteers weekly at Athens Clarke County Animal Services. She is a self-taught baker who often engages in new challenges in the kitchen and believes in the celebration and culture of food traditions. She is looking forward to sharing her passions with students at Firefly! 

In her free time, Amanda enjoys listening to podcasts, reading, learning to sew, watching Great British Bake-off, and planning her family’s travels.
