Meet Mrs. Rickrode

  • family

    Hello, my name is Mrs. Samantha Rickrode and 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 Cal State Fullerton. This will be my sixth year teaching. I have two daughters, Bryce is 5 years old and Tyler is 7 years old. Bryce will be attending Kindergarten and Tyler will be attending second grade at Eagle Canyon in Chino Valley Unified this year. We have a yellow lab named Huey and he brings us so much joy and keeps us very busy. 

    I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, so I love the Oakland Athletics! For fun, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughters. We enjoy game nights and having dance parties. I LOVE to dance (get ready to get up, take a break and show me your best dance moves). I enjoy exercising, mainly running. On weekends, I love to run outdoors and go for walks. 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 crafts on the weekends. We love to read and enjoy reading together. 

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