Miss Sara Schmitt
Hello, and Welcome To 1st Grade! My name is Sara Schmitt and I would love to tell you a little bit about myself!
I grew up in Havelock, NC as a military child. Although you most commonly hear that children in military families spend a majority of their lives moving all around, I was lucky enough to call Havelock my home from the young age of 2! I went to school in Havelock, graduating from Havelock High School in 2010! After high school graduation, I moved to Greenville and began attending East Carolina University, GO PIRATES ARRGGHHH!!! During my senior year at ECU, I completed an internship at Vanceboro Farm Life Elementary School in Miss Katherine's Kindergarten classroom! I graduated from ECU in December of 2015 with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Mathematics. After graduation, I returned home to Havelock and spent the remaining school year, from January to June, teaching 2nd grade at Havelock Elementary School. The following summer, I was given the opportunity to join Vanceboro Farm Life's team as a Kindergarten Teacher! I couldn't pass up the great opportunity to come back to a school that I had already had the pleasure of working in! I taught Kindergarten for two years, 2nd Grade for two years, 5th Grade for one year, and this will be my second year in 1st grade. I can't wait to have fun with all my new students this year!
I love coming to school and enjoy seeing what each day has in store for myself and my students! When I am not at school, I spend my time doing activities that I also enjoy! Quite a bit of my time is spent with my family, including my two nieces and two nephews, who are the best! I also enjoy spending my time at the beach, playing sports, and completing "DIY" projects!
This year, my assistant in Room 210 will be Miss Karen Hill! Stay tuned to hear more about her shortly!
