Mrs. Samantha Decker

Hi students, I am Mrs. Decker! I am so excited to be your teacher this year! I have been teaching First grade for five years now and I love it, so I know you will love it too!


I graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelors degree in elementary education. After graduating I moved back to Ocala and have taught first grade ever since!  In my free time I love to spend time with my husband, my dog and my cat. I also enjoy going on our boat or doing anything outdoors. 


I cannot wait to get to know all of you! First grade is such a special year beacuse this is the year you will learn to READ!
