Hi! I'm Mrs. Samuels and I will be your 2nd grade teacher this year. This is my 8th year at Wilshire Park. While here at WP, I have spent my time teaching 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade. Prior to teaching at Wilshire Park, I spent 2 years teaching kindergarten in Ft. Myers, FL. I have a MA in Educational Leadership from Concordia, St. Paul and my Administrative/K-12 Principal licence from St. Mary's University.
I come from a big family of educators! I grew up in Mahtomedi with my parents and my 2 younger sisters. My husband and I welcomed our first baby, Brinley in July. We also have a gray Tabby, Sammy!
I am excited to have 23 smiling faces joining our classroom this year. Our year will be filled with learning new things in math, reading, science, and social studies. We will incorporate technology during the school day by using iPads and Apple TV in the classroom.
We are going to have a wonderful year working together and growing as people and as learners!
