Degrees and Certifications:
Miss Samantha Finkel is excited to be back with 3rd grade here at Discovery! This will be her fifth year teaching third grade. Miss Finkel completed her Master's degree in Elementary Education at James Madison University. Go Dukes!
Miss Finkel believes in creating a safe, comfortable, and hard-working environment for her class. Her goal is to make her students become more independent learners and problem-solvers. Her hope is for all members of the classroom community to learn how to take care of themselves, each other, and the classroom. She cannot wait to start building relationships with her new group of third graders!
When she's not teaching, you can find her reading, cooking, working out, or traveling. Any beach is her favorite vacation spot, especially with friends and family there at her side. She lives in Fairfax, VA while her family still lives nearby in Sterling, VA. In May of 2019, she adopted her first pet, a puppy Shepard mix named Ellie!
Please contact Miss Finkel with any questions, comments, or concerns.
