Miss Samantha Couse

A little bit about me:

I'm Samantha Couse and this is my third year teaching at Southwest Elementary School! I am originally from Erie, Pennsylvania! 

In my college years at Gannon University, I majored in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. During my time there, I found my passion for Special Education/Exceptional Children. I loved watching, helping and proving to my students that they are able to accomplish more than they believe. Along with my studies, I was also a full time middle school cheerleading coach for three years.

I have known that I wanted to be a teacher since I was in the First Grade. I have always loved watching other people succeed and break through their walls. I believe every child can learn if we present our material in way that the child will understand.  Every student has the ability to reach for the stars and accomplish their dreams and I'm so excited to be the person to help them find their path.
