Mrs. Sammie Darbee

Hi everyone! I'm Mrs. Darbee, and this is my third year at DMS. Although my first two years here I taught both 7th and 8th grade Language Arts, this school year, I'll be teaching all 8th grade English Language Arts. I'm so looking forward to the year ahead! 💛

Before coming to DMS, I worked at Temecula Preparatory School and during my two years there, I taught middle and high school English, Speech/Debate, Drama and Journalism. ✏️

This past summer, my husband, Josh, and I eagerly awaited the completion of our pool, and we have enjoyed it very much since it finished in late July! 🔆 While our extended family, including our little toddler nephew, also love the pool, our puppy, Nessie, doesn't seem to be much of a water pup. Luckily, though, she does love hanging in the backyard with us. 🐾

In my free time, I love to both write and listen to music, exercise, spend time with friends and family, and, of course, read for pleasure. I'm a mystery and thriller fanatic, so I love getting to share the work of Agatha Christie-- one of my all-time favorite authors-- with my students. 🕵️

Let's have a great 2021/2022 school year! 🎉
