My name is Samara Siegel and I teach 1st grade at Eagle Ridge Elementary. This is my 7th year teaching at ERE. I received my Bachelor's degree and Master's degree, both in elementary education, from the University of Florida (GO GATORS!!!). I am currently working on my gifted endorsement as well as my reading endorsement. I grew up in Coral Springs and have always known that I would become a teacher. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing you can make a difference in someone's life. I love working with children and I am very fortunate to be working at a wonderful school with great colleagues and dedicated families.
