My name is Samantha Iliff, and I am celebrating my 16th year here at Bird Special Programs. I've had the pleasure of teaching 1st, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders during my time here so far. Additionally, I serve as the Campus Testing Coordinator. Teaching at Bird is a true joy. I love getting to work with the students that come here. They make me smile daily. Welcome!
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family and our three dogs, traveling when it is safe to do so, and doing arts and crafts like loom knitting and painting. My son is a 2019 graduate of Plano Senior High School (Go Wildcats!), and is currently working at Yellowstone National Park this season. #proudmama
