Samantha is thrilled to be back as a part of our Tucker Maxon family. She was a Teacher of the Deaf in our preschool for 3 years, and now will be Teacher of the Deaf for our elementary students. She is a transplant from Mississippi, and has been a resident of Portland for six years. Samantha loves to travel, and spend most of her time outdoors hiking, kayaking, and exploring. She enjoys music; including creating music, singing, and going to concerts. She spends her quiet time reading, building fresh water tanks, and spending time with her beloved elderly cats. She received her degree in Deaf Education at the University of Southern Mississippi.
