2nd grade rocks!




    Hello everyone! My name is Samantha Lopez and I am so excited to get to know you this school year! This is my second year at Kings Road School, but my first year teaching second grade friends. This year is going to be full of learning not only for the students, but also for myself! I can't wait to get started!

    I currently live in Summit, New Jersey with my brother, mom, dad, and my adorable dog Luna. Other important people in my life include my fiancé Officer Garita, who works for the Summit Police Department. I am sure the students will hear lots of my family stories as the year progresses.

    On my free time I love running, going on hikes (especially during the fall), and cooking new foods (I love trying new foods)!
