Curriculum Development Team

Amanda Riske is a member of THINK Global School’s Curriculum Development Team.  Amanda graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in secondary math education and a certificate in Scandinavian studies. In 2004, she received a Fulbright grant  to study math teacher education at Norway’s University of Oslo. During this time, she also worked with the PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) Plus project. Amanda went on to earn her Masters in comparative international education from the University of Oslo, completing her fieldwork in northern Ghana.

Since 2006 Amanda has taught at international schools in Norway, Germany, China, and the United States. In Shanghai, China, she was the head of the secondary math program, coordinated the Explore China trips for grades 6-11, and established a diving program in conjunction with the trip. In 2015 she ran a workshop for teachers at Harvard’s Project Zero conference in Amsterdam on creating interdisciplinary projects.

In her spare time, Amanda enjoys cycling, scuba diving, theatre, and live music.
