Ms. Samantha Hartman

Hi! My name is Samantha McLean and I am so grateful to be a part of such an incredible group of educators here at Oakview Elementary! I graduated from East Carolina University, in 2013, where I received a Bachelor of Science in Education degree. I am a true Pirate through and through! I have 8 years of teaching experience, 7 of which have been in Kindergarten. I couldn't imagine myself in any other grade level and I joke that I will be teaching Kindergarten at the ripe age of 90! I am newly married to my high school sweetheart and am expecting our first baby, Emslee, in December! Teaching is my passion, more like an obsession at this point, and I dedicate my life to it! My husband and I live in Fuquay with our 13 year old dog child Chloe, an energetic Boxer. In my free time, you can find me spending time with family, shopping, or at the beach! I could not be more excited to spend the year with my new Kindergarten cuties and can't wait to love on them each day!
