Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  My name is Samantha Schwartz and I will be teaching 5th grade reading and language arts this year.  This is my 14th year teaching and I am so excited for the year ahead.  We are going to work hard, learn from each other, and have a lot of fun too.  I hope you are all ready to, “Embrace the Challenge.”
