Amanda Profile Pic Sprout Academy Port Charlotte Amanda Schaar is Sprout’s lead VPK teacher and our VPK administrator.  Amanda was born and raised here in Charlotte County. She is a  graduate of Charlotte High School,  and received her Childhood Development Associate Certificate (CDA)  at the Charlotte Technical center at the same time as her high school diploma.  Since then she has been teaching in the early education field and loving every minute.  Her love of VPK began in 2014 at this very location.  She loves helping children grown and learn.  Their excitement over seeing how things work and when they learn new things always makes her day.  Amanda has two wonderful boys who also attend Sprout in our younger classrooms.  When she has free time, she loves to take them to the park, build towers and go swimming.
