Sammi Dorsch is the Owner of Under the Trees Forest Preschool. She was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and this is where she and her husband are raising their family now.
Throughout high school and college, Sammi volunteered at a summer camp, starting in the kitchen and working her way up to program director for the last year she was there. Through this, Sammi has experience in non-academic outdoor and adventure education including hiking, spelunking, camping, and high and low ropes courses.
Sammi went to Multnomah University for her degree in elementary education with a specialization in early childhood education. She also got a degree in biblical studies at the same time. She has 7 years of experience teaching in Oregon Public schools, grades 1 through 4. She has also worked in daycare with infants, preschoolers, and elementary schoolers. Through this, Sammi has experience teaching, assessing, and meeting learning guidelines for a diverse group of students. Samantha combines those skills with the Oregon Department of Education Early Learning Standards to develop our specialized curriculum at Under the Trees Forest Preschool.
Sammi has two daughters, Mia and Izzy! Mia is excited to be joining Drop Off preschool this year.
