1st Grade


Hello Parents,

       My name is Samantha Yarborough and I am a first grade teacher here at Gallman. This is my fifth year of teaching and I am ecstatic to begin a new exciting year! My teaching journey first began when I graduated from Mid-Carolina High School in 2010. I knew that I wanted to pursue a teaching career ever since I was in Kindergarten. I graduated from Newberry College in 2014 where I received my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. Over the summer I received my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Phoenix. This school year will be a little different for me, as my husband and I are expecting our first child. I will be on maternity leave for approximately eight weeks, beginning at the end of October (if all goes as planned). In my absence, we will have Mrs. Koon take over. Mrs. Koon is a retired teacher with over 30+ years of experience in the education field. She will be a wonderful asset to our team! I began teaching first grade at Gallman Elementary in the Fall of 2014 and I absolutely love it! I am looking forward to starting a new school year as well as working with you and your child. I know we'll have a fantastic year of learning!!
