Mrs. Samantha Hembree
Hi! I'm Samantha Hembree and I've been teaching for 8 years at Calhoun Academy of the Arts. From 2007-2013 I taught with an amazing group of ladies in fourth grade. During the 2014-2015 school year I represented Calhoun as the Reading Coach while completing coursework to gain my add-on certification in special education: learning disabilities. I began the 2015-2016 school year as one of the special education support teachers at Calhoun. I enjoy my newest position and love working with students ranging from Kindergarten through 5th grade.
I have been married for ten years to my wonderful husband Kenneth Hembree. We live in Townville, SC with our two amazing children, Maddy age 5 and Jase who's 9 months old. Maddy is a kindergartener this year at Calhoun and is having a wonderful time. Jase spends the day with his Nanny, my mom, and 1 year old cousin Carter. As a family, we LOVE living the country life with our two dogs, Chloe and Jax, two cats, Sissy and Pepper, and fish Rosie. We love spending time together as a family and doing most everything outdoors. I am a middle sibling and have one older brother and two younger sisters. I am also an aunt to a wonderful bunch of nieces and nephews! The girls are Rileigh, Kinsleigh and Kylee. The boys are Justin, Braylyn and Carter. Our families love to get together and let all of the kids play together. On hot, sunny days you can find all of us enjoying the sunshine and swimming in the pool at Nanny and Poppie's house!
