Meet Mrs. Rickrode

  • family

    Hello, my name is Samantha Rickrode, I am excited to be your child's Second Grade Teacher! I received my Elementary Teaching Credential and my Masters of Science Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from California State University, Fullerton. This will be my eighth year teaching, my sixth year at Eagle Canyon and my sixth year teaching second grade. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 14 years. We have two daughters who are in elementary school, a yellow lab named Huey Lewis and a hamster named Cookie. 

    I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and love most everything that is Bay Area related. I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughters. We love to go camping, being outdoors in nature and being at the beach. We also enjoy game nights and having dance parties. My hobbies include exercising, mainly hiking, running and stand up paddleboarding. On weekends, I love to run outdoors and go for walks or hikes. I am a huge fan of the arts and I love all things art related. My daughters and I often bake, paint, color or create art on the weekends. We love to read and we enjoy reading together. We love to be CREATIVE! 

    This is going to be a great year! I am looking forward to getting to know all of you!
