Samantha Dettorre

Hi! I am Mrs. Dettorre- welcome to the school year! I am very excited to be teaching middle school science in Grafton.  My goals this year are to help my students develop critical thinking skills, help students be the best versions of themselves, and hopefully help students learn to love science as much as I do!

A little bit about me- I received my B.S. in Biology from UMass Amherst in 2007.  After graduation, I worked as a research assistant at UMass for two years before accepting a position at Harvard Medical School.  In 2012, I left Harvard to become a lab manager for a cancer research lab at UMass Amherst.  I left the lab setting in 2015 to pursue my lifelong dream of educating the young minds of Massachusetts.  

Aside from a love of science, I enjoy reading, watching football, spending time with my family, traveling, cuddling with my cats Misty, Binx and Boo, and aspiring to become an Avenger.
