Rachel Schmitt
Preschool Teacher

My name is Rachel Schmitt and I am excited to join the St. Michael Parish School team as the new Preschool Teacher.  I grew up in Westphalia, where I attended St. Mary’s Catholic School and church. I graduated from Ferris State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I have minors in both Mathematics and Child Development. Previously, I worked at Gretchen’s House Early Children’s Learning Community as a Preschool teacher for a year and a half, which brought me great joy. This past year, I did my student teaching in the first grade at Willow Ridge and subbed at various schools for students from birth through high school.
