- "Mrs Topel explains everything very well. She is a strong Christian, willing to tell someone everything she knows about God. She is very kind, but if you get into trouble she will be strict." ~ Grace Lancaster, Grade 3
- "Mrs. Samantha Topel - Three words come to mind: genuine, passionate, and sincere. She has taken the gifts of teaching and compassion for children that God has given her and enriches her students in ways that are immeasurable. Samantha Topel is truly one of the many reasons why St. Matthew Lutheran School is an exemplary school of which to be proud." ~ Mrs. Kerry Rancour
