Amanda Fischer joined Brilla in 2020 as a Seton Teaching Fellow. Before accepting her position as a fellow, she graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Communication Studies from Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana. During her college career, she was a Sorin Fellow at the University of Notre Dame in the de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture, a dancer and choreographer for the Notre Dame Dance Company, co-founded a women’s ministry called “Fiat”, studied abroad in Spain, Italy, and Germany, and advocated for individuals with disabilities through her social impact initiative as Miss Great Lakes, a local preliminary to the Miss America Program. Passionate about serving others, she decided to complete a year of service through Seton Teaching Fellows as well as apply to graduate schools. When she has free time, she enjoys visiting her friends, spending time with loved ones, reading, biking, and hiking the great outdoors.

“The entire educational process must be carried out with love, which is perceptible in every disciplinary measure and which does not instill any fear. And the most effective educational method is not the word of instruction but the living example without which all words remain useless.”

- St. Edith Stein
