Hi! My name is Cindy Roerig. I have the pleasure of beginning my thirteenth year as principal at Samuelson. I honestly believe that Samuelson is the best elementary school in Des Moines. We have a competent and caring staff that truly puts the needs of kids first. It is very important that we keep the lines of communication open. Please make sure to contact us if you ever have any questions or concerns.
I am a Des Moines resident and I am a true advocate for DMPS. In my personal life I am married and have one grown daughter and two grown stepsons. My husband and I have five grandchildren. In my spare time, I love to spend time with them. When I am not with my grandchildren, you might catch me on my motorcycle! I also enjoy shopping and reading.
I look forward to a great year with you and your family! Students will learn many new strategies as we implement the School for Rigor model. You will be learning about this model throughout the year.
Hi! My name is Amy Wiegmann. I am extremely excited to be a member of the Samuelson staff. My journey in the Des Moines Schools started in 1991. I have worked in multiple positions including a special education teacher, behavior interventionist, behavior support teacher, dean of students, associate principal, school improvement leader and elementary principal. I am married, have a son who is attending DMACC, and have three grandchildren with one on the way. I love to play volleyball, garden, go on walks with my dog, and cook. I look forward to serving the students and families at Samuelson!
