Ms. Tammy Samz, Assistant Principal
I arrived at Graham A. Barden by making many stops along the way. I graduated from University of N.C. at Wilmington with a degree in History and a teaching certification in middle and high school Social Studies. After moving to South Carolina, I received my elementary teaching certification from University of S.C. Although I have experience teaching at all school levels, I started my career in Craven County at Grover C. Fields Middle School. From there, I moved to Central Services where I was the Academically Gifted Coordinator and Social Studies Curriculum Coach. After completing my MSA from East Carolina, I was offered an Assistant Principal position at Tucker Creek Middle School. Since that time, I have had experience at Arthur Edwards ES, Ben D. Quinn ES, AH Bangert ES before moving here to Graham Barden. This has proved to be a wonderful experience and great community school. I absolutely love seeing the children each day...greeting them, guiding them, praising them, and at times, correcting them.
I am excited about what your children are doing and learning each day! Please call or email if you have any questions, concerns, or would like to know more about our great school.
