Mx. Amber Schmidt, M.A.
Hello there, Mathemagicians!
I am the IKE Campus Secondary Math Specialist,
("Mix Shhh-Mitt" - my preferred pronouns are they/them).
This is my 14th year teaching middle school mathematics, but my first year here as an IKE General. I am a graduate of NEISD, a UT Austin Longhorn (B.A. in Child Psychology and Mathematics Education - dual major), and a Runner with a Masters in Educational Psychology from UTSA. The doctorate is next on my list!
I am passionate not only about helping all people become more confident logical thinkers, but also in understanding how they think and why things work the way they do. And although we may not always know how to add love or subtract hate, we can find confidence that math teaches us that there is always a solution to the problems we face.
I have 3 amazing kids - my twins are seniors in high school and my youngest is in 7th grade. I also have a silly dog. I love Diet Dr. Pepper, Stitch, making music and art, science fiction, and being weird.
But most of all, I love teaching all of you!
