Hi! I my name is Amy Delmanto and I am The 5th Grade Renegade. I am a 5th grade teacher at Timothy Christian School in Piscataway, NJ. I have been teaching for 20 years. (How is that possible?) I spent 13 years teaching in public school and I am in my 7th year teaching in Christian School. It is where both my husband and I went to school!
I have a wonderful family. I met my husband Aaron when we were in Middle School (at the school where I teach.) We have three kiddos: Sydney is in 9th grade, Lucas is in 3rd grade and Ella is in 2nd grade. My two little ones go to school with me everyday. They attend school where I teach. The 45 minute ride home from school everyday is always interesting!
My favorite football team is the Philadelphia Eagles. I was a fan long before everyone jumped on the bandwagon! When the Eagles won the Super Bowl it was one of my top ten favorite life moments! (Yes, it comes after the birth of my children and my wedding.)
My favorite place on earth to visit is the state of Montana. This is a picture I took in Glacier National Park. I visit friends out there twice a year. Since I live in New Jersey this is no small task.
I am also a breast cancer survivor! I have been cancer free for 7 years! To read the amazing story of how I was diagnosed with breast cancer, click here.
The most important part of my life is my faith in Christ. Would you like to know more about what I believe? Click here.
