• My name is Bekki Schmidt and I teach 1st /3rd grade Reading and Writing.  This is my 2nd year teaching full time at Stratford Elementary.  I was familiar with most of the students as I did my student teaching along with subbing here at the Elementary.    Prior to teaching here at Stratford I was a Pre-K teacher for 2 years in Marshfield.  I have a great passion for teaching and I work hard to engage students in learning through high-energy and hands-on lessons.  

    I love spending time with my husband, my three children, and my three dogs.  We enjoy camping, boating, snowmobiling, and watching football – Go Tigers, Badgers, & Packers! 

    It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students.  I attempt to teach with a passion for my subject so that my students develop a desire to become life-long learners.  I believe in each and every one of my students.  My goal is to help my students reach their fullest potential.
