Mrs. Samantha Groeschel

We have had a great school year! Although I am sad to say goodbye to this amazing group kids, I hope each and every one of you enjoy your summer! I look forward to seeing them as they walk down the hall to fifth grade next year!



Hi! I'm Mrs. Groeschel. I grew up in a small town in central Minnesota and moved to Wisconsin for college, where I met my husband. In 2016, my husband and I decided to relocate to North Carolina and we LOVE it here! Earlier this year, we adopted an orange tabby cat named Harley. She has brought so much joy to our lives. In my free time I enjoy running (I am a half marathoner, working on becoming a true marathoner), reading, quilting, and spending time with my husband.

This is my second year teaching 4th grade and I just love this age! I am so excited to be a part of the West Clayton family this year!
