Samantha Chan / Lead Teacher
Samantha’s love of teaching started with her babysitting experience for friends and neighbors. Starting in 2009 she began putting her one to one experience to use in the classroom, as an assistant teacher at Honeydew Drop Daycare. With time, formal education and experience, Samantha was promoted to Head Teacher of her own site. Samantha also most recently worked as a UPK teacher for the Department of Education. Samantha believes that young children learn and grow through art and creative experiences. She also understands that as parents and educators, it’s important to help children develop socially and emotionally by giving them tools and words to use, so that children can express themselves successfully on their own! Samantha received her Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education with a concentration in Art at Brooklyn College. She also holds her New York State Teaching Certification for Birth to 2nd Grade. Samantha lives in Brooklyn with her husband and two year old child.
