Mrs. Samantha Groeschel
Thank you for a wonderful school year! It has been truly wonderful to work with your child this year and see how much growth they have made as amazing third graders! Enjoy your summer with them!! Please stop by to say hi in August!
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! We have two kids -- our fur baby Harley, an orange tabby cat, and our daughter, Everly, who just celebrated her second birthday! We are expecting a son in early November.
This is my fifth year teaching; my fourth year at WCES and my first year in third grade! I'm excited to be in a new grade with a new group of students. I love being apart of the West Clayton family and look forward to getting to know you and your child this year.
