Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Samantha McClelland

Hi there! I'm Samantha and I am so excited to join the Robinson family! It’s going to be a fun filled year full of lots of learning and new adventures that I cannot wait to take! Just a little about me, I received my Bachelor's degree from Missouri Western State University in Early Childhood Education with an additional certification in Early Childhood Special Education plus I have a Master's degree from Northwest Missouri State University in Curriculum, Instruction, and Engagement. I am originally from a little town, not many have heard of, in Northeast Missouri, before moving to the Kansas City area to begin my teaching career. My family and I relocated to the St. Louis area in summer (2018). This will be my tenth year teaching. My first six years were in first grade and the last three years have been in second grade, where I continue my teaching journey!

I have two dogs, a Sheltie named Belle and an Aussie named Aurora, can you guess where I got their names? I married my high school sweetheart; Zach and we have two beautiful children, Zuri (5) and Ezekiel (1). I am an avid lover of sweet tea, 80s movies and music, and chocolate. In my free time I love to spend time with my loved ones, read, bake, and travel.

I can’t wait to meet you! :)
