Hello! My name is Samantha Randall and I am one of the first grade teachers at DECS. This is my fourth year of teaching first grade and I am ecstatic to continue to help get students ready for second grade. One of my favorite parts of first grade is watching and helping students become amazing readers and because of this, I recently graduated from California State University, East Bay with a master’s degree in Reading and Literacy Instruction. Before that, I completed my undergraduate and teaching credential program at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. I have always had a passion to become an elementary school teacher, and now that I am, I strive every day to create a positive and welcoming environment for my students.
In my free time I love to spend time with my family and friends. I also enjoy riding horses, dirt bikes, and floating in any body of water. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you this year!
