Mrs. Samantha Faison
I attended the University of South Alabama where I recieved my bachelors degree in education. I am certified in K-6 Education as well as Special Education. This will be my fourth year teaching kindergarten at Daphne Elementary. Before that, I was an aid in the special education class here at Daphne.
I am thrilled to be able to teach kindergarten again at Daphne. This is going to be another exciting year as we continue our journey as a Leader in Me School. Students will get the opportunity to let their leadership shine at DES. They will learn about the 7 habits of happy kids which is from Stephen Coveys 7 Habits of Highly Effective Poeple.
I have lived here in Daphne for almost all of my life and have attended Daphne Schools. I actually went to kindergarten here at Daphne Elementary! My husband and I have a German Shepherd “fur-baby” named Cooper. He has as much energy as an entire class full of Kindergarteners! I like to share silly stories/pictures of Cooper from time to time with my students. They really get a kick out of the things he does!
When I'm not teaching I spend time with my family and friends. I love spending time outdoors, mainly in the spring and fall. We usualy go camping in Tuscaloosa on the weekends and go to the Alabama games, Roll Tide!
