Ms. Amanda Hirsch
Hello Harpool!! My name is Amanda Hirsch, and this is my 12th year of public education. I hold a BFA in Theatre Arts, from Sam Houston State University. I also hold a MLS in Organizational Leadership, from Fort Hays State University. I have directed in Grand Prairie ISD, Lewisville ISD and made my way North to Denton ISD. I have been blessed to have performed and directed in both the educational and professional circuits. My greatest achievement is being the mother of twin, 5-year-old boys, Ethan and Owen. They certainly keep me on my toes, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am thrilled to be working alongside Mrs. Heather Alverson again this year. We look forward “Journeying strong, to New Heights” with the Harpool Theatre Department and bringing new inspiration to this year.
