Samantha Shafer
Preschool Teacher

Samantha moved from upstate New York to northern Virginia in 2016. She started working at Emmanuel Christian School and has been working with children ever since. She loves the joy that children bring to learning and creating, the way they think outside the box, and how they tell it like it is.

The church Samantha grew up in played an integral role in her salvation and in giving her a firm foundation. Though that church is smaller, she sees a lot of similarities between it and Emmanuel. The sense of community and family is tangible.

Every day is a new adventure, and Samantha looks forward to seeing where the Lord leads her.
