Mrs. Schmitt and her husband live in Bear, Delaware where they homeschool their 5 year-old-daughter.
Mrs. Schmitt teaches the following courses:
Middle School Spanish 1/2
Middle School Spanish I
Middle School Spanish II
"This was my favorite class that I did for HSC. I really learned a lot and hope to do another Spanish class with Mrs. Schmitt this Fall."
"I originally took the class just as a requirement for college, but now I want to keep learning Spanish!"
"I would definitely do this course again, and will recommend it others. Mrs. Schmitt is a very good, kind teacher. I view Homeschool Connections as very easy to use and full of good content."
