Amanda Hopkins was born on June 14, 1977 in Trumann, USA. She’s a Kindergarten Teacher, who loves children and animals. As a happy and thoughtful teacher, Amanda shares to her students the value of loving the animals and encourages them to take care of those in need. Despite having a limited budget from teaching, she always leaves something for homeless dogs whenever she can. She used part of her proceeds she received from the book sales to donate in a local animal rescue group to help other homeless dogs to find their forever home.
Life and Career
Amanda was born and raised in Trumann, USA. She took up BSE in Elementary Education/ Early Childhood at Arkansas State University and finished her Master’s Degree at the same school right after passing her National Board Certification.
When she started her career as a Kindergarten Teacher, her love for children grew more. She also loves animals, especially dogs, and she never fails to teach her students in showing love and care towards animals. Her students always like to hear her stories. So after she adopted Daisy, a homeless dog, her students really liked to hear about Daisy and what she’s up to. My mom had always encouraged her to write a children’s book, so after Daisy came to live with them, she became her muse for the book.
Not too long after deciding to write a children’s book, Amanda finished the story entitled, Daisy Dog, which is divided into three books. The first book, Daisy Dog: I Love My Family was published on May 31, 2017. It appeals to children, ages 3-10. She wrote it for that level so that her students and children of their age can read and enjoy the three books.
