This is Samantha Krage’s first year teaching at Starr’s Mill. Kroge teaches four environmental science classes and one biology class.


  • Bachelor’s degree in biology
  • Master’s degree in teaching from Georgia College and State University


  • Teaches environmental science and biology 


  • Grew up in the Peachtree City area
  • Taught at McIntosh High School for nine years
  • Sister to math teacher Dr. Nick Castagna

Starr’s Mill welcomes science teacher Samantha Krage to the Panther family. 

“I want to make some kind of impact on them. I want them to get something out of my class beyond just content, whether it’s learning how to work together or learning how to study, learning how to just be a good person in general,” Krage said. “I just want them to learn some life skills from me outside of just the content that I teach.” 

Krage graduated from Starr’s Mill in 2009 and went to study at Georgia College and State University.  

Science teacher Kelly Rock, who taught Krage twice in her high school career, inspired Krage to become a science teacher. Krage had Rock for gifted biology and AP biology.

“I was impressed. I felt like she knew everything about biology,” Krage said. ”I could ask her anything and she knew the answer. I wanted to be just like her.”

Krage’s favorite part of the Panther family is the atmosphere, where teachers and students work together and are helpful toward one another. 

Outside of school, Krage enjoys going to the zoo, taking walks, and spending time outside with her family.

Senior  3rd Year with the Prowler   I enjoy being outside, listening to Taylor Swift, and traveling. My favorite food is seafood.  My favorite places to visit are Greece and the beach. When I graduate from college I want to become a veterinarian. My goal this year on The Prowler is to write better stories.
