Meet Belvidere's New Principal Ms. Samantha Dane 

 
My name is Samantha Dane and I am so excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Belvidere Elementary. I have worked in the Grandview C-4 School District since 2010 as an elementary teacher, district instructional coach and administrator. 
 
Before beginning my career in education, I was fully immersed in the arts as the Company Manager of the Kansas City Repertory theatre.  Having been raised in the Kansas City area, I was excited to branch out and accept the opportunity to study theater through Boston University.  After earning my Bachelor of Fine Arts, I came home to complete my Master of Fine Arts through University of Missouri - Kansas City.  While working as the Company Manager, I had the opportunity to work with and guide children in the arts through our various programs.  I fell in love with education and realized that was where my heart truly lay.  I went on to receive my Master of Education through Rockhurst University and my Educational Specialist through University of Central Missouri.  I am currently working towards my Doctorate of Education.
 
On a personal note, I have a wonderful family with four beautiful children - two in elementary school and two in middle school.  I want the best for them and I strive daily to make sure that each student in my school receives the high level of guidance, education, care and experience that I would want for my own children.
