Samantha Puma is excited to be a part of the Trinity Hall community for a second year! Samantha studied English for four years at Kean University where she received her B.A. in English Studies. Samantha was part of the English Honor Society and tutored struggling students who attended Kean University. In Samantha’s time at Kean, she spent her weeks off during the summer studying Shakespeare’s life and his writing while visiting Stratford Upon Avon, England. In May of 2017, she earned her Masters in the Art of Teaching from Monmouth University, with a focus on teaching English to secondary students. In Samantha’s time at Monmouth, she also received an English as a Second Language certificate and worked with students who needed significant help with the English language.
Samantha is the SADD club moderator, is a part of the Crowning Crew Costume team, and is the assistant coach for the crew team. She is part of the Humanities team and teaches English to ninth and tenth-grade students. She hopes to continue becoming more involved this school year in the TH community!
