Mrs. Ellie Samson
This is my eighteenth-year teaching at LaGrange Middle School. I teach 7th grade math in an inclusive and special class setting. I received my Bachelors of Science in Education, Special Education at SUNY Geneseo and my Masters of Science in Education, Elementary and Special Education at Mount Saint Mary College. Over the years, I had the honor to teach with many motivated, enthusiastic and dedicated educators who shared my passion for all children to become successful learners. Currently, I teach math on Team 5 with my devoted co-teacher, Ms. Vazquez. We take pride in the math curriculum and climate we’ve developed to ensure that all students learn in a classroom atmosphere that is stimulating, encouraging, fair, and adaptive to their various needs. My teaching focuses on differentiating and individualizing instruction based on student’s strengths, needs, and interests. A positive growth mindset is developed and leads to perseverance and grit when students problem solve or when challenged.
I will be using Google classroom for all student assignments. If a parent needs assistance please contact me.
