• Welcome to first grade! My name is Samantha Flores and I am so excited to be your child's teacher. I was born and raised in Red Rock and graduated from Bastrop High School. I went on to receive my bachelors in social work from Texas State University. Soon after graduation I realized I have a passion for teaching and decided to change my career path. I took the alternative certification route to receive my teaching certificate and could not have been happier. I am looking forward to a wonderful year of learning and fun!
