Hello, my name is Mrs. Samuels. I live here in Clayton, NC with my husband and 3 daughters. 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 moved to Riverwood Middle School and taught there for several years before heading to Archer Lodge Middle School. I am happy to be at The Lodge!!
