Amy Glancy is a Southern California native and has lived in Encinitas for the past 16 years. She and her husband, Ryan, have three children who all attended our local public schools. She has been actively involved at their schools volunteering in classrooms, participating in the PTA, and serving on the School Site Council.
She attended San Diego State University, earning both her B.A. in Liberal Arts and K-8 teaching credential. Recently she earned a Master’s degree in Educational Administration from California State University San Marcos. Amy began her career in education in 1995 working in San Diego Unified School District as both a classroom teacher and a literacy staff developer, helping to improve the instruction of literacy in Kindergarten through 6th grade classrooms.
In order to spend more time with her growing family, she stepped away from teaching full time. As her kids gained independence and entered the Encinitas school district, Amy began working as a volunteer. Spending time in the schools reignited her passion for education and she began working as a literacy consultant, a reading intervention teacher and as a substitute teacher within Encinitas schools.
As a consultant, Amy took opportunities to work throughout the state from San Diego to Sacramento helping teachers and administrators develop a stronger understanding of literacy instruction and collaborating to create effective classroom practices.
Although her own children are no longer in the district, moving on to our local middle and high schools, Amy has recognized that elementary education is still where her passion lies and where she wants to focus her attention. And what better place to do it, than right here in her own community.
