Ms. Sara Schmidt
My name is Sara Schmidt, and I have been teaching since 1996. I started my teaching career at Pearblossom Elementary where I taught Kindergarten, Grade 1, and Grade 2. I then moved to Seoul, Korea where I taught, Kindergarten, Grade 1, and Grade 2 at Seoul Foreign School. My next move was to The Netherlands where I taught Grade 1 and 3 at the American School of the Hague. After that I taught in Ethiopia at the International School of Addis Ababa where I taught Grade 3, 4, and 5. Next I moved back to Asia where I taught Grade 5 EAL at the American International School of Guangzhou in China. In 2022, my family and I moved to St Paul, and I started working at Hamline.
I'm originally from Montana where I grew up on a farm. This contributed to my love of gardening. I also enjoy cooking, reading, and hanging out with my family.
