Welcome to Ms. Schmidt's Class!


Hi everybody! My name is Ms. Schmidt and I am the 7th, 8th, and 9th grade science teacher at Lincolnwood Jr./Sr. High School. I am also the sponsor for junior high student council, high school student council, and the Class of 2022. This is my 4th year teaching in Raymond and am looking forward to another great year! Here are a few things to help you get to know me.

  • I grew up in and currently live in Carlinville.
  • I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Crop Sciences from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2014 and went back to school to get my teaching certificaiton in 2015.
  • I am currently working on my Master's degree in Educational Technology from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and will graduate this spring.
  • I have two sisters and two parents who I love spending time with.
  • I love to travel and go on adventures with my friends and boyfriend.


No matter which class I am teaching, my goal is to create a safe, friendly environment where students can learn about real world topics through hands-on activities and project-based learning. My number one motto for my students is for them to give every task their very best effort and to not fear failure. In this class, we dive in, make mistakes, learn from them, and improve ourselves as a result. Learning science is important, but learning how to have a good mindset and get out and explore the world is even more important!
