Kate Schumacher

My name is Kate Schumacher. I am an E1 teacher at Nokomis North Montessori School. E1 is a multigrade classroom with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students. I hope to make a difference in every child’s life that I work with and believe that all students have the ability to make a difference in the world. I am committed to providing a welcoming, safe, peaceful, and engaging environment in the classroom. All students are welcome and encouraged to express themselves. As a teacher, my goal is to make all children feel excited to learn and grow.

A few hobbies that I enjoy include reading, running, baking, and taking my dog, Walter, on walks. My husband, James, and I love going to the Minnehaha dog park and gardening in our backyard. I love growing tomatoes, peppers, and raspberries. I also have an older brother and younger sister. We enjoy spending family time together at Madeline Island and hosting dinners with each other.

I attended the University of Minnesota for my undergraduate work and my graduate work. I am currently attending University of Wisconsin-River Falls for my Montessori Credentials.
