    Teacher: Mr. Michael Samstag (

I have been teaching here at MacArthur since 2009 and have been in the special education department since 2014. Previously, I served in the United States Army for 23 years. My alma mater is the University of Phoenix where I received a B.S. in Information Technology in 2006. My certification is as a generalist teacher (qualified to teach all core subjects for grades 4-8). I am also state certified for
special education and E.S.L. and I have received district training for the special needs of gifted and talented students. It has been my privilege to have coached both girls and boys soccer here at MacArthur.
