At OACS she teaches in the 5th & 6th grade classroom. She states that it is an honor for her to serve as a dual-grade teacher with the task of leading students to Christ. Her belief is that “the success of each child is determined by student buy in, her commitment to God and to them and parent participation”. Her aim is to be a witness to the families that God place in her sphere of influence – ensuring that each child grows spiritually, emotionally, socially, academically, and physically.

Dr. Samuel is super excited to be used by God once more at OACS as not only a classroom teacher but now the school Principal! Her belief is, when we surrender completely to God, amidst the difficulties life throws at us … He orders our steps. Her goal is to be a type of Christ by maintaining a Christ-like attitude as she teaches. She implores the students, parents, coworkers, and the constituent church to work together with OACS to ensure a successful year.

She invites you to “Come and experience – A FRESH START … knowing that God’s love awaits you and
your child”.
