Mrs. Sammie Darbee

Hi everyone! I'm Mrs. Darbee, and this is my second year at DMS. I teach 7th & 8th grade English Language Arts, and I'm so looking forward to the year ahead! I know there is a lot of uncertainty ahead of us this school year, but we'll get through it and come out of it stronger and more capable than ever before. 💛

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, I enjoyed settling into my new home. My husband, Josh, and I were meant to have our wedding in March, and although we unfortunately had to cancel it because of the pandemic, we still got married and then turned our focus to buying a house which has been really fun decorating and making our own. It's a great neighborhood for walks, bike rides, and soaking up the sunshine!🔆

In my free time, I love to both write and listen to music, exercise, spend time with friends/family, and, of course, read for pleasure. I'm a mystery and thriller fanatic, so some of my favorite authors include (but are certainly not limited to): Agatha Christie, Liane Moriarty, Bethany Blake, S.J. Watson, William Landay, Ruth Ware, B.A. Paris, and A.J. Finn. 🕵️

Let's have a great 2020/2021 school year! 🎉
