Samantha Cooper-Tuttle


Hello! I have been the Director of CrossWays Preschool and Celebration! Childcare since 2020. I have been with Holy Cross and our programs, however, since I was 18 years old! In high school, I was going to go to college to become a Kindergarten teacher, but then decided that I wanted my career to be in Early Childhood Education and changed my major. The early years are so important when it comes to learning and growing. Creating meaningful, positive relationships with each of our students is a rewarding and beneficial experience for both myself and our students. When I am not at work, I am spending time with my husband and six children. We like to watch movies together, play games, and enjoy the outdoors. Our family has two dogs and a bearded dragon. Reading outside on a warm, summer day is one of my favorite things to do, especially if it is at the beach!
