Mr. Samuel McDowell

Hello! I am excited about being at North Augusta Middle School teaching 6th and 7th Grade Social Studies. I am currently entering my third year NAMS. This will also be my third year as a lead teacher and my 9th year in education overall. Previously, I was an assistant basketball coach at Airport High School, Fox Creek High School, and Aiken High School. I was also a Special Education Paraprofessional at Airport High School, Lake Murray Elementary School (Lexington), and New Bridge Academy in Lexington County. I graduated in 2016 from the University of South Carolina with a B.A. in History and a Minor in Education. In my free time, I enjoy going to South Carolina athletic events with my wife, playing with our dog and cat, or watching and participating in sports.
