This will be my third year teaching at Samson Elementary School. Prior to joining the Samson family, I taught third grade in Dothan City. I have over 9 years of experience working with children in both a private and public school setting. Before graduating with my B.S. in Elementary Education, I worked at a childcare where I was a Pre-K afterschool teacher and eventually Childcare Director.
Hello! My name is Katie Wells. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Spencer, for 6 years. We have two fur babies, Luke and Ryder. We have lived in Samson for 3 years and enjoy the wonderful community here. In our spare time we enjoy traveling to Walt Disney World or the mountains and spending time with our family and friends. I also enjoy shopping and decorating.
Teaching first grade is a joyful and fulfiling job. The students always bring a smile to my face and I enjoy watching them learn and grow from year to year. As a teacher, I not only have the honor of helping them grow in their education but also in their character. We spend a lot of time over the course of the school year building our character and working to improve our social skills. The students learn through read alouds and songs. I love getting to teach first grade at SES!
