Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Amanda Rushe
I have worked as a professional educator since 1987. I hold Bachelor of Music Education and Bachelor of Music Therapy degrees from Shenandoah University, and a Master’s degree in psychology from Florida State University. I also received middle level math certification in 1988. My service in Lexington School District Five began with Dutch Fork Elementary School where I worked for nine years before moving to Chapin Middle and Chapin Intermediate schools last year. I also completed successfully the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Certification. I currently teach Math 7 and Pre-Algebra at Dutch Fork Middle.
My family includes my husband Randy, who is a physicist, my daughter, Laura, who is a CHS graduate and is a freshman at Florida State University, and my son, Alex, who is a sophomore at Chapin HS. Alex is in the marching band at CHS and we enjoy going to all of his competitions!
I enjoy watching college football, walking/jogging and working out. I love the beach and the lake and being in and around the water! I look forward to working with all of the students at DFMS!
