Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Mrs. Samantha (Sam) Teets and I am so excited for this upcoming school year at Discovery Elementary! I am THRILLED to be your teacher! It’s going to be a fun year full of learning and new adventures. I want to know ALL about you, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about myself.
I was born right here in Loudoun County and am a proud graduate of Loudoun County Public Schools! My husband, Matt, and I got married this June and live in Brambleton. We live with our adorable three-year old dog, Ellie. How cute is she?!
I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees both from James Madison University - GO DUKES! I earned a Master of Arts in Education in 2015 from JMU.
This will be my 8th year teaching. I have spent all 8 years right here at Discovery. I taught third grade for five years and this will be my third year teaching first grade. I adore first graders because they love to learn, make friends, and work hard.
I am excited to be your teacher and for you to be part of this AWESOME, all-star class. I look forward to working with you to create a safe and comfortable learning environment for you and your classmates. This is going to be a fantastic year! ☺
