Ms. Samantha Fraser
Hello! My name is Samantha Fraser. I love to teach, and I am an avid reader. When I'm not teaching, thinking about teaching, or planning new things to teach, I spend my free time with my nose in a book. I also love to explore nature, draw, listen to music, and watch Netflix. The rest of my time, I spend time with my family, friends, and my "babies" - a 15 year old Dachshund (Cheyenne), a 4 year old Bearded Dragon (Spyro), and a 1 year old rescue cat (Tiger).
I have lived in several states in the Midwest and Southeast, but I finally planted roots in Columbia, SC, where I attended Midlands Technical College and the University of Phoenix to earn my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I am certified to teach grades 2-6. Additionally, I have a MACTE Certification of Montessori Education for Elementary I and II.
I have taught 3rd and 4th graders in a multi-age classroom at Sandhills Elementary in Lexington 4, 3rd graders at East Point Academy, and now - 4th grade at LES! This will be my sixth year of teaching, and my first year of teaching at LES. I am so excited to join the Leaphart Family and become a part of this community!!
I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you, and I know that while this year will be different, it will still be amazing!! We will learn so much from each other and have a blast reading good books, writing funny or inspirational stories, and studying the past in ELA and Social Studies.
