Class experience

US Grade 4 - 7
This class is taught by Ms. Tiffany Schmidt!

In addition to spending seven years as a sixth grade teacher, Iโ€™ve taught kindergarten, preschool, and worked extensively with middle and high school writers as a tutor. I have a Masterโ€™s in Elementary Education and a B.A. in English, both from Lehigh University. 

Oh yeah, and Iโ€™m the author of nine novels for teens and tweens, as well as the momma of three impish Schmidtlets. Iโ€™m looking forward to connecting with young writers and readers on Outschool. My goal for my students is always for them to Grow and Glowโ€”knowing itโ€™s safe to try hard and take risks, while feeling good about what they accomplish. My teaching style is dynamic optimism and I canโ€™t wait to write together! 
Below are my general classroom rules and policies. These will also be explained to students when we begin class!
-For everyone's safety, and to ensure an engaging and social experience, students are required to have working microphones and video for the entirety of this class, positioned such that we can both hear and see them.
-Students are asked not to use filters or virtual backgrounds-- though if there is an important reason to use a virtual background, please just let me know ahead of time that your student will be using one (no questions asked!).
-Students will be asked to introduce themselves by sharing their name, pronoun, and a favorite book.
-The Zoom text chat is set to "host only", meaning students can chat with me, but not to one another or the entire classroom.
