      I became a teacher because I wanted to help shape young minds. I believe that in order for students to learn you need to build a relationship with them and provide a safe environment.

      Ever since I can remember I have loved learning. As I grew older I developed a passion for helping others. I decided to combine those two passions and pursue a career in teaching. It is my hope that every student that enters my classroom feels cherished and welcomed and leaves my classroom with the same love of learning I hold in my heart. My goal is to help each and every one of my students reach their greatest potential and for them to grow into life-long learners.

        I love reading, crafting, running, and pretty much anything outdoors. Being active is very important to me. In the summer I spend a lot of time boating with family and friends. In the fall I go deer and elk hunting with my Papa Schroeder and Dad. I’m an avid sports fan. I grew up playing a variety of sports. Volleyball and basketball are my favorite to play, but nothing beats a great Seattle Seahawks football game live or on tv!

      I chose the greatest, most rewarding profession one could possibly have! In what other job do you receive a bouquet of dandelions, an open, tiny hand filled with candies to share, original art work, I love you’s, and spontaneous hugs each day all because you have the opportunity of engaging in teaching little minds and hearts?
