About Me

Hi Gators! My name is Amanda Oliver, and I have been at G.S. Lakie since 2011. I completed my third practicum here and have never looked back!

I first graduated from the University of Lethbridge with a Bachelor of Arts and a major in Psychology. I enjoyed a job working at Family Centre before going back to the university to complete my Bachelor of Education.  I have a passion for teaching Language Arts and strive to foster and inspire a love of reading within my students. I currently teach both Grade 7 and 8 Language Arts, and I couldn’t be happier! I love my students and work hard to create a caring, safe, and engaged learning environment within my classroom.

Outside of teaching, I am a wife to my wonderful hubby and a mother to my sweet baby girl. I love spending time with my family, being outside, being active, crafting, and reading.

I truly love my job, and I am so thankful to be at a school that inspires students and teachers alike and that encourages students to chase their dreams.

Please feel free to contact me at any time. I am always happy to discuss your child’s learning. Go Gators!
