My name is Emma Schneidmuller and I am the 4th and 5th grade GATE teacher for Social Studies and Language Arts at Simmons Elementary School! I am so excited to be teaching here at Simmons! Let me tell you a little bit about myself!
I grew up in New York, but moved to Vermont before I turned 14. I’m a true “Vermonter” at heart. I LOVE Kentucky, but travel home frequently on longer breaks to see my family up in the Green Mountain State.
I graduated from the University of Vermont with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education and a minor in Psychology. While studying at UVM, I was a substitute teacher and student taught in 4th grade and Kindergarten. I also was fortunate to study abroad in New Zealand for 6 months. While in New Zealand, I student taught in a 5th and 6th grade classroom. I also had the opportunity to make some life changing memories like sky diving and hiking through New Zealand’s mountains.
I moved to Kentucky in July of 2014 and have already fallen in love with the state! In my free time, I try to explore as much of the Bluegrass as possible. I’ve already seen the Natural Bridge, spent a day at Keeneland and enjoyed a concert at Rupp Arena! Most importantly, I’ve had the pleasure of working with the fabulous faculty and amazing kids at Simmons Elementary! Each day here at Simmons is an adventure.
