Ms. Amy Taucher

I have been part of the RLAS-116 staff since 2002 and have enjoyed every minute! I started as a 4th grade teacher and over the years I accepted other teaching positions. In 2015 I accepted my current position at John T. Magee Middle School as a school counselor. I also have a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling. Currently in my role I provide academic and social-emotional support to students through individual and group settings. I also provide students with activities to get them thinking about their career path. Some of those activities inlcude career-centered lessons in the classroom or visits to the Lake County Tech Campus. I'm a big part of the levels of support offered to all students through different academic and behavior interventions. I also hold different leadership roles such as being part of the Magee Leadership Team. I continue to grow professionally through workshops, trainings and research. 

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband, twin daughters and pets. I like to do different crafts, bake, cook and read.
