Hi! I’m Amanda Adams-Barney. I wear so many hats I think perhaps I should open up a hat shop (then that would be another hat!). I am a business owner, meeting planner, published author, actress, mother of two teens, and involved community member. 
I am passionate about helping people be the very best that they can be, and that certainly extends to kids. I have served as a Cub Scout Den Leader, Cubmaster, soccer and baseball coach, and created a pretty awesome middle school Halloween party. And now I am excited to be helping teens learn all the “sneaky hacks” that they need to know to be really successful in life.





My name is Erika Huyck and I have been teaching in Montgomery County for 15 years.  I am a National Board Certified teacher and love helping children expand their understanding of the world around them.  Working with and connecting to teenagers has become a new passion for me.  This course has been my opportunity to teach the whole child and brighten the future by teaching the children of today.
