Miss Sam Magid

My name is Sam Magid and I am the  6th grade teacher at John Powers Center! I have wanted to be a Deaf and Hard of Hearing teacher since I first visited JPC when I was in high school and saw these DHH teachers do such amazing things for their students. I am so happy to be back this school year!


I graduated from Illinois State University in 2017 with my Bachelors in Deaf Education, and have worked with early childhood through eighth grade since then in itinerant, resource, and classroom settings. I recently graduated from National Louis University in 2021 with my Master’s in Teaching, Learning, and Assessment and my Special Education (LBS 1) Certificate. I am looking forward to this upcoming year to help my students increase their academics and independence both in and out of the classroom.
