About Sam

This is Sam’s second year as Lead Site Instructor and she is looking forward to building an even stronger community at Peninsula. She appreciates the connections a Before and After School program can create for students.

When she’s not at work, Sam is typically outside! She especially likes hiking, archery, and cloud watching or stargazing.
