Hello, my name is Mrs. Samuels. I live here in Clayton, NC with my husband, 3 daughters and our dog Toby. In my free time, I enjoy reading a good book, going to the beach and hanging out with my husband and kids. I graduated from St. Joseph's College in 2003 with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education then went on to get my Master's Degree from Long Island University in Reading. In NY, I spent 9 years teaching in the field of Special Education. I began working for Johnston County Schools in 2014 at West Clayton Elementary School. I spent 1 year at WCES then moved over to Riverwood Middle School. I am going into my 4th year teaching at Riverwood Middle School. Go Ravens!!! If you have any questions please send me an email or see me before or after class.
