My name is Mandy Winningham and I am absolutely thrilled to teach English at Boulevard Academy! This will be my 15th year of teaching, but my first year in Edmond. My family and I just moved to Edmond from Oklahoma City and we can’t wait to begin our new adventures here.
I obtained my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Central Oklahoma and began teaching in 2004. Although I teach English, I also have degrees in Journalism, Biology, and Forensic Science. I’ve taught everything from English to creative writing to Shakespeare and even anatomy and physiology. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a student’s eyes light up when they finally “get” a concept or when you show them how improved their writing has become over the course of a year. I sincerely love my job and what I get to do every single day. I consider myself extremely lucky to have such an amazing impact on so many kids.
My husband and I have a huge blended family, including my two boys and his three kids. We are definitely family-oriented and enjoy time playing and traveling with our family and our silly pit-bull, Salty. I also love to read, watch movies, dance, cook/bake, and go to music concerts and plays.
I consider myself to be a very friendly, warm, accepting, outgoing, goofy person who loves to have fun in the classroom while teaching. I’m beyond thankful for this opportunity to join the Boulevard Family!
