Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Samantha Maxwell
I am currently a PreK teacher and this is my third year at the Nantucket Elementary School. I enjoy working with our PreK students and strive to create a welcoming environment as they embark on their first educational experience. I personally believe that students learn best from their peers and I enjoy incorporating hands-on learning approaches that both motivate and encourage all students to actively participate throughout the day.
I studied Special Education at Westfield State University for my undergraduate work. I have also completed my Master’s of Education at Fitchburg State University.
I am a certified teacher with the following licenses:
- Moderate Disabilities, PreK-8
- Early Childhood: Students with and without disabilities, PreK-2
- Elementary, 1-6
- SEI (Sheltered English Immersion) Endorsement
