Hello! I'm Samantha Harker and I teach third grade.  This will be my seventh year teaching 3rd grade at South Ridge and the eleventh year of my teaching career.  Prior to coming to South Ridge, I taught first grade in both Esko and Bemidji. I grew up in Cloquet. I received my undergraduate degree at the University of Minnesota-Duluth and my graduate degree at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
     When I am not in school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our five kids. I also love coaching basketball, playing sports, traveling, rollerblading, walking our dog (Trip), and being around family!  
      I am very excited to be starting another year at South Ridge and am eager to share my love of learning with my students! Go Panthers!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
