Mandie Badrak

Welcome to 3rd grade, Cougars!  My name is Amanda (Mandie) Badrak and I am excited to share this school year with you!
I have spent eights years in SBISD teaching third grade, mostly focusing on Language Arts and Social Studies.  It is through this experience that I have been able to form a deep love for literacy.  Before moving to Houston, I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Early Education and Business Administration from The University of Texas at Austin.  I wholeheartedly believe that all students can succeed in many ways inside and outside of the classroom.  I pride myself in teaching my students to be lifelong learners and even deeper thinkers, not just “third graders.”  Relationships are key to a successful year and I look forward to forming one with your family!    
I grew up just north of San Antonio in a suburb called Schertz.  My family still lives in San Antonio, so I am very familiar with I-10 west as I visit them frequently.  One reason I know this route well is because I am a proud Aunt to Austen, my sweet nephew, who we welcomed last April.  When I am not visiting my family, you can find me living life and indulging in yummy food in the Houston Heights. I love to tap into my creative side by designing and creating crafts as well. Relationships are key to a successful year and I look forward to forming one with your family!
