During their time in the Helpful Hippos classroom, the children will experience a morning circle time, small group activities centered around art, colors/shapes and texture table, and an outside recess time. Each child in our Helpful Hippos classroom is taking one nap a day, enjoying our nutritional menu, and learning to use utensils.

Lead Teacher: Ms. Samie

Hi! My name is Ms. Samie and I am the lead teacher in the Helpful Hippos Classroom.


Growing up, I taught in my church nursery and fell in love with working with children. I would always play pretend school growing up.

I have my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Development. Teaching at Big Steps Little Feet reminds me of all of the dreams I had coming true! My dream is to teach children and help them to achieve their goals. I cannot wait to help your children to do that too. I am so excited to know your children more and see what they will become.
