Amoura Carter - Giving her Best Effort for her Students
Amoura Carter is a dedicated language arts teacher in Charlotte, North Carolina. She has worked for years to give her students her best possible effort so that they can learn from her earn their education the right way. She is always challenging both her students and herself in the classroom to heighten her and her students understanding of the subjects her students must learn to be successful. In addition to teaching at Ashley Park K-8 in language arts, Carter was also a tutor at the Sylvan Learning Center, helping students of all ages get the extracurricular help they need to succeed in their language arts and math classes.
Amoura Carter graduated from Davidson College with a degree in English. She wanted to write her own stories and articles so she could say what she wanted to say and get people to read her thoughts. After college, she spent a year living in China, where she taught English language classes and wrote articles for a Chinese expat newspaper. Carter returned to the United States, to Charlotte, where she was born and where she lived until she was six years old, a new person ready for all of life’s challenges. She began her teaching career while she was in graduate school working on her Master’s degree in Education at Lesley University by substitute teaching in her community.
Amoura Carter learned early in her teaching career that students always respond to the teacher if they feel that he or she is giving his or her best effort. Carter uses this knowledge that students respond when they know their teacher cares about them every day in her work. She is always looking for new ways to challenge both herself and her classroom to learn new things and understand the secrets of reading and writing. Carter believes that reading sets people free, especially young people. She used to love to read when she was a kid and has now made a career out of passing that passion down to young people.
Amoura Carter was a technology associate at Metro School in Charlotte for a year, teaching a basic technology course for teachers. After earning her Master’s degree, Carter became the seventh grade language arts teacher at Mountain Island Charter School, where she also worked as the speech and debate coach. Carter used Expeditionary Learning Curriculum when teaching her seventh grade language arts course at Ashley Park K-8. She plans on applying those same skills as a new teacher at Garinger High School.
