Amanda Samples

Executive Director
Elementary Education

As the Executive Director of Elementary Education, I support all administrators and teachers in our primary, elementary, and intermediate schools to ensure our students are growing and excelling in all academic and social-emotional areas while creating a passion for learning. We are committed to providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for our students. We are also dedicated to providing curriculum and instruction which best supports students as they grow as learners beginning with their first school experiences in Kindergarten. When our students conclude their elementary years at the end of the fifth grade, our goal is for all students to have the foundational and leadership skills to excel during their secondary years in DeSoto County Schools.

Welcome to DeSoto County Schools. Please contact me if I can be of assistance in anyway. Be sure to visit all of our informational links for more information on our programs and instructional practices.
