    Hello and welcome! My name is Samantha Sifford and I am the 5th grade traditional math teacher this year at Glenhope.
    I have been blessed by the opportunity to work with children and young people for the past 9 years. I graduated from the University of North Texas in 2008 with a Bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies with a certification in early childhood through 4th grade. Following graduation, I decided to pursue children's and youth ministry in different Methodist Churches throughout the DFW area. Four years ago, I felt a tug on my heart to go back into classroom teaching and spent two years serving Irving ISD by teaching 4th grade ELAR and Science before coming to Glenhope in 2016. Recently, I have earned my ESL certification as well as my certification to teach 4th through 8th grade. 
     In July 2017, I married my best friend, Jeff. We live in Euless with our dog Maggie and our cat Olive.  In my free time, I spend as much of it as I can with my family, our family pets, and two nieces who live in Flower Mound, TX. I love to be outdoors, travel, and to read a good book with a cup of coffee in my hand. 
    As a graduate from GCISD schools, and a previous student of Dr. Griffin, I recognize the importance of creating life long learners and am dedicated to your children, our community and our school. I feel like I have finally "come home" to GCISD and look forward to working alongside you this school year!
