My name is Samantha and I am currently working as a Special Education teacher in the Worcester Public Schools. I am passionate about working with children and helping them to succeed. I believe that every child should be able to reach their potential and enjoy learning. My experience with children includes a wide variety of situations.

I began my career working with children as a childcare provider. Over the years I have worked as a Religious Education Instructor, a Camp Counselor, a Tutor, an AVID Tutor, a nanny, and a teacher. Within these situation I have worked with all ages and a variety of disabilities.

I am level one certified in the Wilson Reading System and working towards my level two certification.

This is fifth year in my current position as a Learning Disabilities Teacher and and Inclusion Teacher. I work with students in Kindergarten through Sixth grade.
