My name is Mrs. Erica Samp and I graduated from MN Statue University, Mankato in 2002 with a BS in Secondary Social Studies Education with a concentration in History. I am licensed to teach 5-12 Social Studies.
I have been teaching full-time in the Alden-Conger school district since the fall of 2006 to the present. I feel very fortunate to teach in such a great school and community with such wonderful students! My busy schedule consists of teaching seventh/eighth grade Geography opposite of American History every other year and freshmen American History. I have really enjoyed making Geography and History engaging, hands-on, and relevant to students’ lives. As the Yearbook advisor you can find me behind a camera lens helping the yearbook staff document the school year. Lastly to help promote school spirit and community involvement, I advise the Student Council.
I also enjoy working with the dedicated staff at Alden-Conger. As the Staff Development Co-Coordinator and a member of the IObserve Leadership Team, I help my fellow colleagues all while improving myself as a teacher and leader. To promote a healthy life style among the staff, I head the Health and Wellness Committee.
Outside of school I am a wife to Chad and mother of two beautiful daughters, Markey and Scarlett. I spend my free time taking my children to their activities, dance and figure skating. I also enjoy photography, theater, traveling, the outdoors, camping, biking, and spending time with my family.
