SARAHSCHMIDTHello Palmer Lake parents,

I am excited to work with you this year as Palmer Lake Elementary’s Assistant Principal.  Let me take a moment to introduce myself.  Most of my teaching career was spent teaching 5th grade at Fair Oaks Elementary and 6th grade at Oak View Elementary.  My last three years were at North View Middle School working with teachers.  I have a strong background in instruction, professional learning communities, and positive behavior management.  I believe strongly in ensuring a safe learning environment where students can take risks as learners, be pushed to think at high levels, work collaboratively, and take initiative for their own learning.  My husband and I have three kids, a 4th grader, a kindergartner, and a 23 month old.  During my free time I love riding bike and exploring with my family (the Coon Rapids Dam is one of our favorite places!).  I also am a gardener, quilter, and baker. 

My door is open, so if you have questions or concerns you would like to discuss with me, please don’t hesitate to call or email me.
