My name is Amanda Trinka and I am the Special Education Teacher for 9th-12th Grade.  This is my 6th year working at Laporte.
I grew up in Grand Forks, ND.  I attended UND and received my undergrad in elementary education.  I moved to Bemidji in 2010 to be with my now husband.  I was a 1st grade teacher in Red Lake from the 2010-2012 school year until I decided to stay home and do daycare so I could be with my infant son.  While I was doing daycare I was also taking Special Education graduate classes and graduated with my Masters in Special Education in 2015. I did daycare until I started at Laporte in the fall of 2014. 
I enjoy spending time with my two kids and husband.  I also enjoy my summers at the lake relaxing and enjoying the weather.  In my free time (when I have it) I enjoy watching hockey (Go Souix), being outside, and doing crafts.

If you have any questions or concerns about your student please feel free to email or call me.
