Samantha Reiter

Vice President

Samantha joined PTO three years ago and is super excited to be working with the amazing ladies that make up this year’s board.  Samantha and her husband Stephen met during college at Texas A&M (WHOOP!) and have been married for 12 years.  They have two wonderfully (still) exhausting kids: energetic Dylan, going into 3rd grade and sassy Paityn, who is almost 5 years old…going on 15.  Sam works for a local governmental agency and when she is not working or “PTO-ing” she is running kids to baseball, soccer, gymnastics and swimming practices and games – and she loves every minute of the chaos!  She is very much looking forward to getting back into “the groove of things” and helping to make this year fun and memorable for the faculty, kids, and parents at BBE!

Shelly Ainsworth


Shelly is excited to be this year’s PTO Secretary and brand new to the PTO crew!  Shelly has lived in Magnolia for 8 years but is originally from Maryland.  She and her husband Adam (who is from deep East Texas) moved here after her husband served in the Marine Corps.  Shelly and Adam have two sweet (and sometimes sour) kiddos, Maci, who will be in 4th grade and Jace, who will be starting his first year at BBE in Kindergarten!  Shelly also has two bonus kiddos with her husband, Sean (18) and Ainsley (11).  Shelly spent 7 years working at Capital One and in 2019 had the opportunity to stay home with her kiddos and “the rest is history”!  Shelly enjoys staying busy and involved with all her children’s extra-curricular activities (cheer, baseball, horse riding) and while some days she seems to feel like they are going non-stop she has seen how important it is to be there for them because of how quickly they grow up.  Shelly is looking forward to being able to be involved with the PTO this year and can’t wait for all we have in store for the amazing BBE families!
