Mrs. Amy Broekhuis
Welcome to fifth grade; I am so excited to be your teacher and help you wrap up your elementary years! I have been a teacher at Madden for six years and I am thrilled to be a husky! Before moving to Texas in 2016, I graduated with honors and a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from DeSales University in Center Valley, PA.
I'm a proud mom and wife. My family includes Rob, a chemical engineer and avid gardener, Max, a grad student at Rensselaer in Troy, NY, (uh, go pucks?) Ben, a Junior at University of Texas, Austin (Hook 'em!), and Lily, a Sophomore at Sam Houston University (Eat Em' Up Kats!). I'm also pet mom to a gaggle of critters: old cat Bear, young cat Milo, Cornelia the corn snake, and Hippie, the crazy but ever-loveable Husky-mix. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my family, Walt Disney World, shopping, appreciating my husband's gardening, and reading.
I believe that it is essential that parents, teachers, and students work together as a strong team on the journey to success, and I look forward to being your partner this year.
