Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Tammy Schmidt
Welcome to our classroom website! My name is Tammy Schmidt. I am delighted to teach 5th grade ELA and social studies again this year. I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management from Kansas Wesleyan University and obtained my Masters of Education Degree in Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University. My goal in teaching is to make the content “come alive” through diverse teaching strategies. I love to inspire young minds to reach their goals while they discover the world around them.
My husband (of 18 years) and I have lived in Arizona for 11 years. We have two very energetic children who both attend Gavilan Peak. My daughter, Tiara, is in the 8th grade and my son, Tyce, is in 4th grade. We love to spend time outdoors, enjoy going to the movies, and cherish our time with family and friends.
I feel that “laughter is the best medicine” in life and encourage students to laugh in my classroom everyday. I promote a classroom environment where students feel welcome and are excited to be a part of Gavilan Peak.
Fifth grade is going to be an awesome year for your child. We will work hard, learn from each other, and continue to grow each day as we strive for excellence.
