My name is Samantha Krage and this is my 2nd year at Rockdale High School. This is my 5th year as a teacher. I started my career in Killeen at Shoemaker HS. Then I taught for 2 years in DeSoto at DeSoto High School. I graduated from Bartlett High School in 2007 and I have a bachelor's degree from Texas A&M University in College Station, TX.
I love teaching high school aged students. They have come so far in their educational journey and now are at the point where they refine their skills in order to prepare for post-secondary life. As a teacher it is my job to ensure that my students leave my room understanding their role and function in our growing, global society. The skills that I want my students to leave my class with include those not only based in English, but that can be applied to every day life. A large part of my class will be spent working with others, because that is a skill that is essential to success.
