7th Grade Homeroom/Middle School Teacher
Hi! I'm Samantha, and I was raised in Southern California, where I spent the majority of my first 25 years. I moved to Heber 29 years ago, and have fallen in love with this valley as an amazing place to live and raise my two sons.
I graduated from Utah Valley University with my Bachelor of Science, Elementary Education in 2013, and I am certified in Elementary Education (K-8).
I have taught at Timpanogos Intermediate School as the Computer/Keyboarding teacher for both 5th and 6th grade, and was fortunate enough to be brought on as a 5th grade teacher at Soldier Hollow Charter School for the 2014/15 school year. I have been teaching in our middle school since 2017.
I have many interests outside of school that include reading, running, camping, hiking, and any other outdoor activity with my family.
I believe every child can! Each student has his or her own potential and way of learning. It is my goal to bring out that potential by incorporating a variety of methods. Some straight forward and many hands on.
