My name is Roberta Schmidt and I have been teaching for 21 years.
I am from Wisconsin and moved to Florida in 2003. I have been part of the Sunray family for 13 years. The majority of my experience has been teaching first grade. I love teaching and helping the first grade students to use their understanding of phonics and number sense to build a solid academic foundation that will lead them to success in the upcoming years.
My first career was as a professional Ballroom Dance Instructor. I worked with adults to become confident social and competitive dancers. I still love to dance and share the enjoyment of music and movement with the students.
My daily goal is to be a motivating and encouraging facilitator of learning. I truly love guiding students to discover their individual strengths and to expand their curiosity to engage in the unknown and take risks to become problem solvers that reach their highest potential. At the end of the day, I anxiously go home to collect my greeting from my precious Carlye , a Maltipoo.
I look forward to our year of “New Beginnings” and can’t wait to engage your child in the love of learning.
