First-year teachers ready for school Friday
Editor’s note: The following are two new Perkins County Schools teachers not included in last week’s introduction story.
Born and raised in Grant, Samantha Snogren graduated in May from the University of Nebraska in Kearney.
She will be teaching fourth grade as well as third-grade math. She has also taken on the position of head cheer coach, and has been working with the cheerleaders this summer. They sold fireworks and are preparing for the Chase County Fair Dance Competition this Saturday in Imperial.
Snogren said she chose teaching because she’s always loved learning.
“I had awesome teachers growing up and my goal is to be able to help my students fall in love with learning just like my teachers did for me. I am excited to be able to give back to the community that gave so much to me!”
Snogren lives in Grant.
Also a first-year teacher, Madison Seamann will be teaching second grade. She graduated from Chadron State College after attending North Platte Community College for two years on a basketball scholarship.
Originally wanting to be a librarian, it wasn’t until she was student teaching that she realized teaching was what she wanted to do every day.
“I want my students at Perkins County Schools to be critical thinkers and continuous learners. In order to do this, I need to step out of the box for lessons and get all students involved with our learning and discussions.”
Seamann will live in Madrid.
