Ms. Samantha Macdonald

Welcome to Fourth Grade! I am excited to introduce myself as your child’s 4th grade teacher. I am thrilled to be a part of the Ardsley community. Prior to working at Ardsley, I taught for 6 years in New York City. 

My goal for this year is to create a safe and welcoming learning environment inclusive to all. I will help students reach their greatest potential and foster their love for learning.  My classroom will be a place where students are encouraged to ask questions, take risks, and grow as individuals and members of a community.  

If you need to contact me, please send me an email at I am looking forward to working alongside you to make this a wonderful experience for your child!
