Mrs. Samuels was born and raised in Washington, D.C. Her parents still live in the home where she lived at during her youth. She graduated from Banneker Senior High School and Howard University.
She hasn't always been a teacher. After graduating from college, she worked for State Farm Insurance until she decided she wanted to educate our future leaders and become a teacher. She earned her Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from George Mason University. Her first teaching job was here at Rose Hill Elementary School in 2007 and has been a Rocket ever since. She has taught all of the even grades: 2nd, 4th, and 6th.
One of the most important things to her is family. Mrs. Samuels is married and has twin daughters who recently graduated from college. Without their support, she couldn’t have become the teacher that she is today.
