In her studies she chose to focus on the Intermediate and Senior Phase of education. Sam taught Grades 4 to 9 for three years in Cape Town. Before moving to Hanoi, she completed her TEFL diploma. While here she has been teaching ESL to learners aged 1 to 12 years old. Sam thoroughly enjoys teaching learners in the elementary phase. She strives to create a classroom atmosphere of warmth and acceptance where students feel empowered to do their best and make good decisions. She aims to promote an inclusive environment where students feel safe to communicate, build relationships, be innovative and think critically. Sam looks forward to an enjoyable and successful academic year.

I find joy in exploring new places, trying new food, reading, swimming and going for walks. My favorite subject at school was always Science. Learning about the natural world has always fascinated me. I am adventurous and love seeking new challenges. I have always had a passion for working with children. Watching how the students I work with grow emotionally and academically over time brings me such excitement and motivation. With an interest in diversity and conservation, I aim to influence those who I teach to have the the same respect and appreciation for the world we live in. I strive to continuously learn and develop as an individual and a teacher.
