Ms. Samantha Maxwell
Welcome to Ms. Maxwell's First Grade Class
I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! This is my first year at Groves Elementary and I cannot wait for all the awesome things we will learn together! This will be my sixth year teaching and my fifth year teaching 1st grade.
I grew up in San Antonio, Texas and went to the University of North Texas in Denton. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, playing with my dogs, and spending time with my family and friends.
I love working with children and am so excited to see them grow during this school year!
This year we will be using several portals that will allow you to stay up to date on announcements and see all the hard work your child is doing in 1st grade! We will be using Seesaw and Google classroom for class work and Class Dojo for behavior. (More info below)
With all the technology and schooling from home, I ask that you give yourself, your child, and all of us at the school grace and time. Everything is extremely different this year for each and every one of us and we are all learning together. Ask questions, try things out, be patient, but know that I am here to help you and your child in the best possible way through all of these changes!
