Samantha Gray (Dykgraaf)

Samantha Dykgraaf

My name is Samantha Dykgraaf, this is my fifth year teaching! I grew up in Grapevine and attended GCISD schools K-12. I graduated from Tarleton State University (#BleedPurple)! My favorite quote is “By doing what you love, you inspire and awaken the hearts of others”. I love teaching and knew from a young age I wanted to become a teacher. I have a passion for helping students see the growth they can achieve and also having them see their worth. Every student I’ve worked with has touched my heart and shaped the teacher I have become. My other passion in life is volunteering. My favorite place to volunteer is in South Padre at Sea Turtle Inc. I spend my free time outdoors. I enjoy hiking, kayaking, reading and playing with my border collie. We will have a fantastic year in second grade! Please follow our story on Twitter! @gesGray
