Mrs. Randi McManus

I have been teaching for 12 years at Andrew Jackson Language Academy.  During this time I have worked with 4th and 5th graders.  I have participated in various committees such as ILT, MTSS, Principal Selection, Technology Committee, PPLC, etc.  I am currently teaching Math, and Science in 4th grade.

I had the opportunity to implement the Chemistry Club at AJLA in 2010 as an afterschool activity.  I have written and received many grants such as Oppenheimer Grant, Donors Choose, CFE Grant, Rochelle Lee / Boundless Readers and You Be The Chemist.  

I am a mother, grandma and wife.  I have been married to my husband Matthew for 32 years.  I have two sons Matthew Jr. and Thomas.  I also have a wonderful daughter-in-law, Jamie.  As of July 2017, I became a grandmother.  My grandson is my pride and joy.  His name is Liam Matthew.  Before becoming a teacher, I worked as a Radiation Therapy Technologist for 23 years.
