ATPE is proud to bring you this series of posts from our staff members. Today’s post features Office Administrator Amanda Bernstein.

What drew you to working at ATPE?
Many of my family members serve the education community in various ways. My current position blends all my previous experiences in life into one job.

How long have you been working at ATPE? What was your first job here?
I’ve been ATPE’s office administrator for the last five years. The time has passed by quickly. This position provides the ability to create a comfortable and efficient environment for our employees who serve our members.

What is the most important thing you’ve learned while working here?
It’s all about teamwork. I work on the administration side of the organization, which doesn’t lend itself to interacting with our members frequently. It is great when we come together for summit and NTOs. This provides an opportunity to interact with some of our members. It renews my energy to serve this organization.

What is your favorite part of working at ATPE?
Two things. First, we have some great people here at ATPE. This job provides opportunities for interacting with all facets of the organization. Second, there is the variety of skills involved with my position. No two days are alike. I am always on the go!

Share something fun about yourself that ATPE members might not know.
I’m an outdoorsy girl. When I’m not at the office, you can catch me photographing nature in one of the wonderful parks in our National and State Park system. There is something serene about it, that is until you have to reach over that cliff to get that perfect shot! 😊 When you are at the state office, visit the Huntland Hideout to view some of my photos.
