Andrew Eckert Biography


My name is Andrew Eckert. I am currently in my 1st year of teaching. I graduated from Benedictine College in 2012 with my Health and Physical Education teaching degree. I am teaching at the High School as the Physical Education teacher. In class we are trying to focus a lot on becoming stronger and healthier individuals. 

I just recently got married to Amanda Avey, now Amanda Eckert, and we are currently living in Atchison, Ks. Amanda is working as a Para-Educator at Atchison Elementary School and she has been there for last 4 years. We have a lovely dog named Chewbacca Eckert who loves to ruin stuff that is left out during the day when we are not home.  

I am also an Assistant Football Coach, Head Boys Basketball Coach and Sponsor for Powerlifting. This is my 4th year of coaching Football, my 5th year of coaching Basketball (first as a Head Coach) and this will be my first year being a part of Powerlifting. I am very excited to be a part of the Hiawatha Community and look forward to the sports season.
