Hello, I'm Bridget Schmidt and this is my eleventh year of teaching in Medina. I have greatly enjoyed working for the Medina Central School District and I have taught both Kindergarten and First Grade during those eleven years.
I grew up in Newfane and attended Niagara University for my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary and Special Education. I attended Medaille College for a Master of Science in Literacy, and I attended University of Rochester for an extension in School Administration.
I have a passion for working with children. My classroom is an interactive learning environment where we focus on academics, social learning, and how learners can be successful in fostering their own learning. Learning happens everywhere and always, and it is my goal to ensure students understand how they learn so they can be successful inside and outside of the school environment.
I am a life-long learner myself and I make sure to tell the students about things I am learning in my personal life. I am currently taking piano lessons- which is a humbling experience for me to be sure! I love to read- I am always working on a book or two, and I also love to knit.
I look forward to working with you over the course of the year!
