Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelors in Early Childhood Education
Hi, everyone! My name is Samantha Shimensky. I moved here from Ohio about two years ago and I am so excited to be here! I decided to move to Virginia so that I could start my teaching career here, and so that I could be closer to my sisters.
I attended Kent State University and graduated with my bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. I have wanted to be a teacher ever since I was a little kid! The greatest part of teaching, for me, is seeing what each child is capable of and their growth throughout the school year!
If you want to know a little bit about me, I have two sisters that both live in Stafford. I was so excited to move to Virginia so that I could be close to them again even though I was leaving my parents in Ohio. I also have a niece and nephew that I get to see almost everyday now! Family means everything to me, so when I found out I had the chance to move to be closer to mine, I was ecstatic! I have two corgi puppies, Micah and Marcus! They are the absolute best and of course the cutest! I am engaged to my fiance Eric, and we will be getting married next year!
I am ready to start the school year and get to know each one of my students and watch them grow as lifelong learners!
