 Educational Philosophy 

Hi all!  My name is Samantha Dinkel, this is my first year teaching 4th grade.  I did my student teaching in 4th grade at Northridge Elementary last year with Mrs. Wojeckowski.  I am so excited to start the year!  

"You have brains in your head.  You have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself in any direction you choose."  Dr. Seuss               As a teacher I feel it is most important to create an environment where students feel safe, comfortable, and are excited to learn.  In our classroom students will feel respected, valued, cared for, and believed in.  As a class we will celebrate each other and learn from each other everyday.
