Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Amy Vaughn

My name is Amy Vaughn and I am so excited to be part of the first grade team at Heights Elementary again this year.  This is my ninth year teaching and I love working with our young first graders as they become readers and creative problem solvers.

I earned my teaching certificate from Boise State University where I became qualified to teach any grade kindergarten through 8th and Spanish or English as a second language in 9th through 12th.  

I started my teaching career at Notus Elementary where I taught kindergarten, third, and fourth grades.  My first year students are now high school seniors!  Once a child is in my class, they will forever be “one of my kids”.  I am excited to watch these young adults graduate and see where their education takes them as they proceed with their next adventures in life.

I have also taught at Heritage Community Charter School.  As part of a dual language immersion program I taught fourth grade in Spanish.

I am now in my second year in the Middleton School District.  I was married in June 2016 and my husband and I just purchased our new home in Middleton.  We love the small town feel and being only a few minutes away from the school has been great!

I am honored to have the opportunity to teach our precious youth.  I take it very seriously as I value the importance of every child.  I feel it my honor and duty to challenge my students every day as they transform into the best versions of themselves.  I thank you for visiting my website and please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!
