Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome! I am Laura Schmitt and I am the 5th grade Exceptional Children's program teacher at Dixon Middle School. I have been in special educaiton for 8 years professionally and am just coming back to the school system after being home with my children for the past 8 years. I work closely with the wonderful general education teachers here at Dixon Middle. Together, we collaborate to meet the individual learning goals of each student. We work hard to create lessons to meet the needs of the whole group, as well as tweak projects as needed to meet the personal academic needs of every student. I completed my undergraduate degree at Appalachian State University in Special Education and my master's degree at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in Curriculum and Supervision. I have five beautiful chlidren of my own that keep me on my toes while they keep my heart full! I welcome communication, so please be in touch if you have any questions or concerns about your child's education.
