Welcome to Fifth Grade

Hello, H. Clarke Powers students and families! I am glad you are visiting my bio page. My name is Mrs. Samantha (Sam) Mashinchi, and I teach 5th grade at H. Clarke Powers.  My teaching experience includes teaching for 5 years at an International Baccalaureate school in Washington, D.C. and one year in San Jose. This will be my fourth year here at HCP. I am honored and thrilled to be teaching 5th grade at H. Clarke Powers.  When not spending time in my classroom, you might find me reading a book, at the farmers’ market, gardening or doing DYI projects with my husband, Adam, our son, and our dog, Carson.
