    preschool director

    Samantha was born and raised here in Hart County and at SBC. She obtained her bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) and taught in some capacity in the public school system until answering the calling for preschool education. Samantha married her high school sweetheart, Sam, and they have two awesome boys, Jackson and Grady. Samantha would definitely describe herself as a "boy mom". In her spare time she loves to be outside (summer is her favorite season), spending time with her family, or baking sweet treats.
