Ms. Kristen Schmidt
Welcome to Ms. Schmidt's 5th grade class! This year the 5th grade teachers will be departmentalized. I will teach ELA, Reading and US History to 1865. My partner teacher, Ms. Murphy, will teach Math and Science.
The 2022-2023 school year marks my 19th year of teaching with Danville Public Schools. I moved to Danville from my hometown of Clinton, Iowa in 2003. I began my DPS teaching career at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School and transferred to Gibson when it transitioned to an elementary school.
Teaching is my calling and I enjoy it immensely. It is also extremely challenging and I strive to do my best every day. My parents instilled a strong work ethic in me as well as a love of learning. I bring these values with me to school every day. With hard work and determination, anything is possible!
This year our class focus will be on:
* Building and Growing Positive Relationships With Each Other
* Creating an Inclusive Environment Where Every Student Feels Welcome and Valued
* Abiding by the School Motto of "Be Kind, Be Responsible and Never Give Up"
* Mastering the Standards of Learning in ALL Core Subjects
