Ms. Amber Dorries
Welcome to fifth grade! My name is Amber Dorries and I am thrilled to be a part of the Chukker Creek team and am excited to be your child's teacher this year!
Even though this is my second year at Chukker Creek, it is my 17th year in education. I taught fifth grade for 11 years in Illinois in public education. In addition, I taught 5th grade for four years in South Carolina at Midland Valley Christian Academy.
I graduated from Olivet Nazarene University in 2002 with my Bachelor's degree in elementary education. In 2012, I graduated from Olivet with a Master's in Education. I finished my Gifted and Talented Endorsement at the end of last year from USCA.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy running, coffee, reading, going to baseball games and the beach, and spending time with my sons. I am a busy baseball, basketball, and soccer mom of three boys.
