Samantha Birmingham – Teacher, Classroom 1                                                  samantha@coastalcommunitypreschool.com

I have been working with children for nearly 20 years. Being a teacher has been a passion of mine from as early as I can remember. I always played “teacher” in school and, as soon as I was old enough, started babysitting the neighborhood kids.  I love being around children and enjoy watching them learn and grow.

I have Early Childhood Education units from Cabrillo College and UCSC Extension and I’m currently working towards a degree. I’ve also completed the SEEDS Early Literacy Class through First 5.

I grew up in Santa Cruz and currently live in Scotts Valley with my husband Steve, and our very stubborn and strong willed, almost 4yr old son, Collin.  In my spare time I enjoy family outings to the beach, park, vacation, camping, biking, cooking, photography and crafts.

I’m excited to be a part of the CCP family. I love working here and look forward to creating new friendships with all the children and families.
