Samantha Lazar is a teacher and writer living in North Carolina. She teaches 5th graders everything from Language Arts to How to Be a Good Human. She studied English and secondary education with a concentration in creative writing at Appalachian State University. After two decades in the classroom, Samantha decided to delve deeper into the study of how people learn. She has a Masters in Education from Meredith College.

As a child, she knew she wanted to be a writer after connecting with the characters in Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh and Daphne’s Book by Mary Downing Hahn. She spends most of her time encouraging kids and young adults to dig deep and use their power of language to inspire the world. Samantha is currently working on her first poetry collection, a memoir about learning to use creativity for healing from childhood trauma. She is at home wherever she is with her husband and son.

She is a writer and poet on Medium and editor of Sky Collection.
