Mr. Sam Watrous


Hello! My name is Sam Watrous and this will be my 6th year teaching, and my third year in 3rd grade. In my free time I like to be active and outdoors. My wife is also a teacher at Four Oaks Elementary, and we just had our first child. I am looking forward to working collaboratively with you to ensure your child has a year full of growth and enjoyment.
