Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Samantha Pollino and I am delighted to be a 1st grade teacher at Ronald Reagan Elementary School. I was raised in Corona and attended all of my school years in the public school system. CNUSD provided me with such a phenomenal experience to broaden my interests with sports, clubs, and academic subjects. I dreamed of being an elementary school teacher from the age of four and I have never deviated from this plan. During my college years at Cal State University of San Bernardino, I had the privilege of teaching students in a variety of ways. I played an active role in the special needs teaching ministry for two years at my church, I taught grades 1-3 at the Think Together after-school program in Jurupa Valley, and more recently taught through the student teacher credential program at Foothill Elementary grades 3 and 5. I had the pleasure of teaching 1st grade in Ronald Reagan Elementary's inaugural year and am looking forward to year three!
My personality is friendly, sincere, and approachable. In my personal life, I love to spend time with family and friends, travel the world, watch sports, go to the river, and take long walks with my dogs, Cali and Chevy.
I aspire to develop young minds, cultivate life-long learners, and impact the future of society. I just plain and simply love teaching and being surrounded by students of all ages and working with the amazing and talented teachers and staff of Ronald Reagan elementary school in Eastvale. My request of the parents for the 2017-2018 school year is to support me through open and honest communication and be involved in your child’s educational journey.
