About Amanda McKethan

I have a degree in Elementary Education from Baylor University. I am the Studio Manager at Joy’s School of Dance where I have taught dance for 13 years. I am very involved at Harris Creek Baptist Church, where I am a member, a lifegroup leader, and also volunteer in the children’s ministry. I am also a founder of a dance ministry, Miriam’s Army, that partners with Restoration Haven Ministries in East Waco, where girls are encouraged to know their worth, be empowered and praise God through dance. God, dancing, and kids are my absolute favorite things. This is my 7th year to teach at Brazos Valley Co-Op! I love being able to share my passion with young people!
