Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!       

Hello! I'm Samantha Harker and I teach third grade.  This will be my tenth year teaching 3rd grade at South Ridge and the fourteenth 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 sports, photography, traveling, reading, 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!
