Mrs. Sammie Darbee

Hi everyone! I'm Mrs. Darbee, and this is my third year at DMS. Although I taught both 7th and 8th grade Language Arts my first 2 years here, this school year, I began teaching all 8th grade English Language Arts. Then, as many of you know, I was asked to take over as the Drama teacher starting at second semester. I'm greatly looking forward to this semester 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. ✏️

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. My husband, Josh, and I adore spending time with our 1-year-old puppy, Nessie, and enjoy attending dog agility classes with her; something I did as a teenager with my former dog and still love to this day. 🐾

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