Samantha has been a preschool teacher for 12 years. She earned her degree in Early Childhood Education, and after 7 years at the Medical Center Nursery School, is very excited to be joining the Columbus Pre-School community! Sam, as her friends call her, has a love and passion for theater; she works with different theater companies and non-profit organizations making and acquiring props, acting, singing, and dancing on stage. She brings this into the classroom through elaborate story-telling, encouraging children to create their own stories, and making time for them to act out their favorite stories. Sam loves to travel the world and volunteers abroad in her time away from school.
