About Ms. Schmit
I suppose I should spill the beans because I know you'll eventually figure it out: I am a product of Twin Bridges Schools. Despite my background, I hope we can still get along. Upon graduating from TBHS in 2008, I moved to Missoula to begin my education. I wasn't always interested in being an educator, however. Initially, I dedicated myself to Journalism and spent the better part of two years studying that particular field. Eventually, I realized it wasn't my passion; for whatever reason, it didn't feel like the right fit. I looked to teaching, mainly because I had come from a family of educators: my grandpa got his first teaching job at a rural school district in Iowa, while my mother (pictured here with my preteen self) started teaching at Twin Bridges School District in 1995.
After graduating from college, I found myself in Wisconsin. I had moved there on a whim and started working on Washington Island, an island in the middle of Lake Michigan. From there, I found my first teaching job in Greenwood, Wisconsin--a lovely farming community famous for Grassland Dairy, its butter factory. The Greenwood School District was incredibly kind to me, but something was always missing. I longed for mountains and proximity to family. When I saw the teaching vacancy at Sheridan High School, I knew it was the perfect opportunity for me to get back home.
So here I am: forever a Falcon but now a Panther, too.
