Elementary Staff: Kindergarten

Amanda White


My name is Amanda White (formerly Fruzynski for all my previous students!). I’ve been teaching since 2009 and started teaching at Armistead Gardens in 2010. I’ve taught Pre-K, 2nd grade and have been teaching Kindergarten for the last several years (and it’s my favorite!). I grew up in Arizona and went to Arizona State University before joining Teach For America and coming to the east coast. I received my masters in Early Childhood Education at Johns Hopkins University. I love reading, cooking and crafts. I grew up speaking Polish with my family and am in the process of learning Spanish, mostly from the awesome bilingual students and families here at our school.

Katie Sauer

I am a Kindergarten Teacher at AG and this is my 17th year teaching in Baltimore City. I went to Elon University in North Carolina and went on to get my teaching degree through BCTR and my Masters Degree from Johns Hopkins. My family was born and raised in Baltimore. I have two young kids who keep me busy during the summer months with swim team and lots of trips to the beach. I love animals, especially my lab Mack. I also enjoy running, reading and spending time on my dad’s boat during summer break!
