Ms. Samantha James
Hello! I am excited to have your student in my classroom this year!
I am entering my fifth year of teaching and second year at Lake Murray Elementary! I have taught both 3rd and 4th grade. Building a positive and engaging classroom community is at the center of what I do. I hold each student to the same high expectations and expect them to be active participants every single day!
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of North Carolina Wilmington in 2019. I received my Master of Arts in Reading Education from Grand Canyon University in 2021.
When I am not teaching, I love being around my fiancé, family, and friends. My favorite place to be is by the beach, pool, or lake! I love listening to podcasts, reading, playing tennis, and using my Cricut.
My goal is to visit every continent in my lifetime - 3 down, 4 to go!
