Mrs. Michelle (Micki) McKnight

     I am Michelle (Micki) McKnight.  I have been happily married to Chuck McKnight for thirty years and we share two awesome daughters, Taylor and Kaitlyn. I am a proud graduate of Samson High School.  As a matter of fact, my family is full of Samson High School graduates. My grandparents, parents, sister and children, just to name a few.  It is for this reason, that I am so honored to have the opportunity to teach in Samson!

     I have been teaching for twenty-six years. This is my first year as the Local Reading Specialist.  I am so excited to watch our students bloom into lifelong readers here at Samson Elementary School.  My favorite quote comes from Dr. Seuss's "Oh, the Places You'll Go!"  

     You have brains in your head.

     You have feet in your shoes.

     You can steer yourself any direction you choose!

My main goal as an educator is for the students I teach to understand that as long as they believe in themselves and work hard, anything is possible.
