About Amanda Lewe

Hey there! My name is Amanda and graduated from W&M with a degree in Economics. I am currently working as a middle school History teacher in San Francisco, but Williamsburg will always be my home away from home.

On campus I was a student assistant in the Dean of Arts & Sciences Office and a tour guide in the Admissions Office. I also studied abroad in Prague, Seville and Cuba.
