Hello! My name is Ms. Schukert and I am SO excited to be part of Norman Smith and the First Grade team! I am looking forward to being your child’s teacher this year! It’s going to be a fun year filled with lots of learning and new adventures and I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us. I can’t wait to watch your child grow this year. Here is a little bit about me!
I was born and raised in McKenzie, TN. I am the youngest of two children. I have known that I wanted to be a teacher since I was in Kindergarten. I had a wonderful Kindergarten teacher who inspired me to be a teacher. I hope that I can inspire your child to be anything they want to be.
I went to college at The University of Tennessee at Martin and have a Bachelor’s degree in Early Elementary Education. I graduated from McKenzie High School in 2014.
This is going to be a GREAT year! I hope you are ready to learn alongside with me!
