Mrs. Samantha Hopkins

A product of NEISD myself, I am excited to begin my 22nd year teaching American History!  I am proud to say that this will be my 21st year teaching at Barbara Bush MS, as I was one of the original faculty members when our school first opened its doors in August, 1998. I attended NEISD schools from 1st through 12th grade, and love teaching in the district in which I grew up in.  I have my Bachelors Degree in History from SWTSU (it will always be SWT to me), and my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from UTSA (go Roadrunners!).  

I am married, and have two elementary-aged boys that are crazy about playing baseball and long course swimming.  My hobbies include running (my favorite distance is the full marathon), photography,  travel, cooking, and reading.  I have a deep love of coffee, pictures, the beach, and all things patriotic. I am blessed to combine my passion for working with children and my love of our nation's past, and look forward to the opportunity to teach your child this year.
