Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ms. Schmidt and I graduated from Missouri State University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and an emphasis in Special Education. After graduating, I was a substitute teacher in the Republic School District. I loved working with different grade levels and meeting amazing staff members. I knew right away that I loved Republic Schools, so I applied and got a full time teaching position here! This will be my third year teaching third grade at Lyon! I am so excited to work in third grade because third grade was my favorite and most memorable year of elementary school as a child! I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and I spend my summers at the Lake of the Ozarks. I enjoy teaching, traveling, adventuring, shopping, cheering on the St. Louis Blues, and spending time on the water with family and friends! One of my most favorite adventures was when I lived and taught in Costa Rica for a summer! I’m excited for for the 2019-2020 school year!
