Samantha Pattridge

  • MA English (2001) University of Alberta
  • MSc Writing and Cultural Politics (1999) University of Edinburgh
  • Hon BA (1997) SFU

Samantha has wanted to teach since she was three years old, according to her grandmother, who had to play student to Samantha's "teacher." After high school, Samantha came to UFV for the first time when it was still known as Fraser Valley College. She decided then to teach at post-secondary because she enjoyed the experience so much. She stayed until FVC became UCFV, before transferring to SFU to finish her degree, and now Samantha is delighted to be back again for the next evolution of this wonderful institution.

In her spare time, Samantha likes to get to the outdoors with her family - every year she goes camping with her horses and dogs as often as possible. She also enjoys travel, and she is a former tenor drummer with two world champion bands: the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band and the Boghall and Bathgate Pipe Band in Scotland.
