St. Augustin Physical Education

Meet Mr. Samuelson

This is my third year teaching but my first year teaching at St. Augustin. I previously taught at Christ the King School before I left to help my wife grow our in-home daycare. While it has been great working at home and seeing daycare families grow, I felt God was telling me it was time to go back to teaching. I will be teaching PreKindergarten through eighth-grade Physical Education and am the Activities Director. I attended Simpson College.

 What I enjoy most about teaching: It’s great teaching all the different grade levels because of the varying skill levels and getting to know all the students in the school. It’s also amazing to see the levels of growth in each student from year to year.

About my family: I live in Norwalk with my wife Polly and three daughters Penny (12), Madelyn (10) and Gwyn (8). We have two dogs, one cat, and backyard chickens and ducks. We have a very busy household!

Outside of school I enjoy: I enjoy watching our backyard animals do their animal thing. Each chicken and duck has a unique personality. I also enjoy gardening, woodworking and playing Minecraft with my kids every now and then.
