Mrs. Samantha Yurkewicz

Hello! Welcome to Mrs. Yurkewicz's website! I am super excited to be starting out my third year as a teacher in 3rd grade teacher at Cooper! I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania called Johnsonburg. I attended Clarion University of Pennsylvania for my bachelors degree in both Early Childhood and Special Education. A few things about me are that I love animals, I love to read books, and I love art. This is my third year at Cooper and I am so excited! One thing I love about teaching is that I continually learn along with the students.  I look forward to working with you and your child during one of the most exciting and challenging elementary grade levels!
