She has a fierce commitment to children, parents, and staff. Samantha leads by example, says what she means, and means what she says. She isn't afraid to have difficult conversations while offering support and guidance. She helps people recognize their strengths and allows for reflection and personal growth. In addition, she maintains an open-door policy where staff, students, and parents feel heard, affirmed, and valued. Samantha has high expectations and helps everyone who has the opportunity of working with her.
