Mrs. Amanda Dorazio

 

Welcome to Rising Star Early Childhood Education Center!  My name is Amanda Dorazio and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the students, staff, and families of our early childhood community.  I have a Bachelors of Science from James Madison Univerisity and a Masters of Education from Regent University.   Before becoming an Assisstant Principal, I taught Kindergarten for 15 years and first grade for one year at Rocky Run Elementary.   Together, as a Rising Star community we will provide engaging, meaningful, and fun experiences for our youngest learners.

My favorite quote by Rita Pierson states, " Every child deserves a champion- an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be."  Together, as a Rising Star community, we can be champions for all children!
