Samantha Koch

My name is Samantha Koch (pronounced "Cook").  I am 1 of 2 resource room teachers at Central Elementary. I typically service 4th-6th grade!

This will be my 7th year teaching and my 3rd year teaching for Flushing Schools.  Prior to joining the Central Cats I taught 3rd-5th grade Special Education in Berrien Springs, Michigan.  I was born and raised in Flushing and love being a Raider once again. 

My Bachelor's degree is in Elementary Education and Special Education K-12 from Calvin College in Grand Rapids and my Master's in Special Education is from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo.  I am extremely passionate about growing as a teacher and am constantly looking for new books, articles, and blogs to keep up to date with. I love brainstorming with other teachers and learning new things!

 My hobbies include playing cars with my nephew, enjoying Michigan's lakes and rivers, hiking with my mom, and curling up with a new book. I love travelling and I am always planning my next trip!
