Hello My Name Is...

Amanda Player

Hey y'all! This is my 4th year at New Diana Middle School and I am so excited! I am the school counselor. The 2016-2017 school year will begin my 10th year in education. I have taught a wide range of subjects and coached at both the middle school and high school levels. 

I graduated from Pleasant Grove High School in Texarkana, TX in 2003. I received my B.S.E. in Physical Education in 2007 from Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, AR. I received my education there through a volleyball scholarship! I am currently working on my Masters in School Counseling through Lamar University and will graduate in December 2014.

I have been married to my husband, Kyle, for 9 years and we have one child, Nolan Judd, who was born on February 28th, 2014. He is the sweetest thing EVER! When I’m not spending all my time teaching and coaching, in my free time I love being outdoors! However, who has FREE TIME when you have a baby?! 

I'm ready for a great school year!
