Hi, my name is Dana Schmitt and I am thrilled to be on staff at New Heights Charter School in Stillwater. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Minnesota State Mankato and a Master of Arts in Education from Concordia St Paul.
This will be my 3rd year as the K-5 Special Education teacher at New Heights. I began my education career as a Director of Education for Sylvan Learning Center. Ten years of my education career has been in the field of Early Childhood Education as a pre-kindergarten teacher for both Goddard and Primrose Schools.
Teaching at New Heights is appealing to me because of the alignment of their teaching philosophy with my own. I truly believe each child deserves an environment in which they can learn and grow to their full potential.
I enjoy running, biking, and spending time with my friends and family.
