When i moved to texas in 7th grade, it was a really hard time adjusting and I remember so vividly have Mr. Amland be the most influential teacher i’ve ever had. He’s really the only teacher that I never forgot. Having a name like Itatiana, no teacher ever in my entire life, to this day, has said it right every time. Mr. Amland wanted to learn my name and he never wanted to mess it up and he never did. Mr. Amland really changed school for me and made me realize that if i apply myself, i can accomplish anything. I really love and respect him. I know you will rest in peace Mr. Amland because you were my definition of a perfect specimen.

One of Noah's greatest attributes is his patience. How he was able to handle a young, over zealous, new to the profession kid out of college is a true miracle. What made him a great coach is that he had the big picture in mind. He knew his audience from middle school students, coaches on his staff, and teachers he worked along side. He was very thoughtful in how he talked with everyone with a dose of humor. "The Professor" was the nickname the coaching staff gave him as he was very steady with emotions and almost mono-tone; but very quick witted. What made him so funny is a lot of his jokes and jabs were over our heads and he'd laugh at his own jokes. Thanks for being part of my life being that person who guided me in the early steps of my career.

Mr. Amland was my 7th grade Texas History teacher at roach middle school. He was one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. He always made that class a blast and was an amazing person. I’ll never forget him and he will truly be missed. God bless him and his family. -K.C.

I met Noah while student teaching at RMS. His room was next door to mine. He made me laugh and made me feel right at home there. I will remember his kindness and his humor most of all. He will be missed. Prayers to his family and friends.

Noah Amland was a great colleague and friend. We spent many awesome nights on a football field, basketball court and track. He was soft spoken and always saw the positive in people. He was a fun loving guy who didn't take himself too seriously and that what made him great. Rest in Peace my good friend.
You'll always be "The Hammer from Chicago"
Love ya brother!

Noah was a man like no other and will never be forgotten- he was raised right and Austin and Carter carry on their Father's likeness and character all while coming into their own...
All through high school and college, and from what I read here on into his life, Noah was a man of integrity, faith, love and laughter. He treated everyone with equal respect no matter who you were and his smile was contagious. We are all better for having known him and having had him in our lives. If only we could all treat people like Noah did, or even just a little like he did, this world would be a better place.
I will see you again, Noah and I look forward to that day but until then I'm glad that you are whole and healthy once again.
May God bless your family with the peace that only He can bring.
