Mrs. Rachael Schmidt, First Grade Teacher
College(s): Texas Tech University
Family: I am the oldest of four children, and have 2 brothers and a sister. I live with my husband, Matthew, and our two cats, Daisy and Marie. We will be welcoming our first child, a baby girl in December.
Teaching History: I previously taught at Katherine G. Johnson STEM Academy in Greenville ISD before moving to Huffman. This will be my second year at Huffman. I have taught Kindergarten and 2nd, and am so excited to be teaching 1st grade this year!
Interests/Hobbies Outside of School: I love reading, watching movies, spending time with family, and shopping. I also enjoy thrifting with my husband. In addition to being a teacher, he runs a small online resale business that we love finding things for!
Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? I believe that every child should be given the opportunity to grow in new ways and learn to appreciate the diversity of one another.
