Mrs. Amanda McGary

Hello! My name is Mandy McGary and I am the Literacy Coach at Presidential Meadows Elementary. This is my nineteenth year working in Manor ISD.  I taught 2nd grade for fourteen years before transitioning to my role as a Literacy Coach. I have been a proud PME eagle since it opened in 2006.  I am passionate about literacy and enjoy supporting teachers in finding ways to grow life-long learners who have a genuine love for reading.

I was born and raised in Austin, Texas. Go Longhorns! I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Texas State University and went on to earn my Master’s in Reading at the University of Texas at Arlington.

Outside of school I enjoy reading, running, shopping and spending time with my husband, dog, family and friends. 


  • Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.
