Samantha Witkes, M.A.

Education Director

Samantha joined the World Ocean School in August 2013 and spent her first three weeks living and working aboard Roseway. She quickly learned what the organization was all about and since those first few weeks, has enjoyed every minute of her job. Samantha loves working with a small team in the Boston office and the time she gets to spend on Roseway with the crew and students.

Samantha has a Bachelors Degree from Lafayette College and a Masters in Teaching from Simmons College. Before World Ocean School, she spent five years working with Boston area students. She has taught in classrooms in Newton and Roxbury and was the Director of a Sylvan Learning Tutoring Center south of Boston.

Samantha enjoys running in road races, spending time at the beach in Maine with her family and traveling whenever possible, especially to meet Roseway in the Caribbean in the winter!
