About Mrs. Schmidt

    I am so excited about getting the opportunity to work with your children! I grew up in Hardeeville, SC where I attended Hilton Head Christian Academy and developed a love for learning and education. I graduated in December 2008 from Brewton-Parker College in Mount Vernon, GA with a degree in Early Childhood Education. My teachers at HHCA all had influential parts in my decision to teach through investing in my life daily. My love for education was turned into a passion through the faculty at Brewton-Parker College. They have prepared me not only for the twists and turns of my career, but equally for the spiritual twists and turns of life.
     This year will be my third year teaching in early childhood. I have previously taught a combination class in Albany, Georgia. Most recently, I taught a special needs class at Kicklighter Academy in Savannah, Georgia. These were both learning experiences that I treasure. I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of students in both cases and look forward what the Lord has in store for us this year at HHCA!
    Teaching is not my only passion. I have a passion and genuine love for Jesus Christ. I grew up in a Christian home with God fearing parents. I accepted Jesus as my Savior at a very young age. I am grateful to work with a team of teachers for the glory of God. I am heavily involved in the community through children's and music ministry at my church, The Cross Road Baptist Church. 
    I was married on December 13, 2008 to David Schmidt. David also graduated from Brewton-Parker College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. We both enjoy music but specifically singing. He currently directs the music at our church. We do not have any children, but we do have a dog (Oscar) and three cats (Smokey, Jingleheimer or Jingles, and PJ) which I am sure your children will hear lots about!
    I have often heard it said that beginning teachers come in to change the world and quickly realize that they cannot. I assure you, that I am changing the world simply by investing time in children's education and their spiritual growth. Thank you for partnering with me for your child's benefit!
