My name is Amanda K. McLaughlin. I am married and have two daughters. This is my 8th year here at CCMS. Teaching is actually my second career. I originally went to the University of Alabama and majored in Communication and Information Sciences and minored in German. I intended to build a career in corporate public relations. My future, at the time, held different plans. I went back to school at the University of Montevallo and earned a Masters in Education. I am now starting my 11th year in teaching. I love what I do. I tell my students each year that I was built for this!
