Mrs. Sambs

Greetings! The 2018-2019 school year marks my 18th year at Groveland.  

In my many years at Groveland I have had the great opportunity to teach a variety of grades.  Each grade has helped shape my hopes and goals as an educator. I have taught 3rd grade, 5th grade, and I am now enjoying my first year in 4th grade.  As a teacher of color I value above all else a strong sense of community where students feel and believe they are valued learners.  My strong classroom management skills provide an environment where students can take risks and enjoy learning.  I enjoy cultivating strong relationships with both students and their families. Cheers to another great year!

  • Greg Howard

    Greg Howard is the author of The Whispers. He grew up near the coast of South Carolina. His hometown of Georgetown is known as the “Ghost Capital of the South,” and was always a great source of material for his overactive imagination. Raised in a staunchly religious home, Greg escaped into the arts: singing, playing piano, acting, writing songs, and making up stories. Currently, Greg resides in Nashville, Tennessee, with his husband, Steve, and their three rescued fur babies Molly, Toby, and Riley.
