Hello, ED677!

My name is Lacey Schmidt, and I teach fourth grade in Lower Merion School District.  I love what I do, and am always looking for ways to enrich my students and enhance the way in which they learn.  I can honestly say that I don’t know much about technology, and already (creating a Twitter handle, and a Blog) has pushed my limits.  My husband is a computer engineer, so one would think that I would have more knowledge when it comes to technology, but I don’t.  I am looking forward to learning more through this course.

A bit about myself-

I am currently enrolled working toward my STEM certification through Arcadia University. For the next year and a half I’ll be working towards STEM and Connected Learning to get my Master’s Degree.

I just got married in August.  My husband and I got married underneath a willow tree in his parent’s backyard- it was the most perfect evening.  We exchanged our vows with the birds chirping and a gentle breeze blowing the willow.  We both love the outdoors, and wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!

I am a triathlete, and will soon be training to compete in my sixth Ironman Triathlon.  I love triathlons in general, and have a true passion for long-distance courses, such as the Ironman.  Running is my strongest leg of the race, as I’ve always been a distance runner. My husband and I met on a bike team at the college we both went to, so we do a lot of the riding together.  I don’t love to swim, but luckily that’s the “shortest” part of the very, very long day.

I am about to begin my Yoga certification to become a yoga teacher, as that is another one of my passions.  I am excited for the journey to becoming a teacher since it will be the first time I’m combining the two things that I love- fitness AND teaching.

Thank you for reading a bit about me, and I look forward to knowing about each one of you as this semester continues!
