Welcome Back To School

Welcome Back Y50!
My name is Samantha Smith, and I am beginning my 6th year of teaching. Currently, I am certified to teach grades Birth through 12 and I teach a 6:1:1 High School Alternate Assessment class at our Port Richmond High School location. I graduated with a Masters Degree in Special Education from Wagner College in 2016. I am currently pursuing a School Building Leader Certification with The College of Saint Rose.
I am looking forward to another wonderful school year with your child.  Our entire classroom staff supports all of our students based on their individual needs, interests, and strengths. Please call me here during school hours 718-420-2100. Please download the remind app to contact me.  Open up your web browser and go to the following link: or text the message @chcdc2 to 81010.
I hope everyone has been safe and well during this unprecedented time. Let's make this a school year one for the books!
