Samantha O’Connor

1st Grade


My name is Samantha (please call me Sam) Beekman and this is my first year teaching at Lena Elementary. I graduated from UW Green Bay in May of 2018, so this is my first year teaching! I was born and raised in Oconto and graduated from Oconto High School in 2014. I currently live in Oconto with my fiancé and our 2 dogs. When I’m not teaching, I spend most of my time taking my dogs for walks through the woods, kayaking, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

I have known my whole life that I wanted to be an elementary teacher, and now is finally my time to shine and make an impact on my students lives! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at”
