My name is Margaret Schmidt, but everyone calls me “Maggie”.  I graduated from Troy University in 2009 with a degree in Comprehensive Science/Secondary Education and again in 2011 with a degree in Instrumental Music Education.  I started my teaching career as a band director at a small school outside of Enterprise, Alabama.  However, I soon realized that was not what I desired to do for the rest of my career.  I began working on a Master’s degree in Instructional Design and Delivery this past Fall 2015.  Currently, I’m a high school physical science teacher in Dothan, Alabama and this is my 5th year of teaching.

Typically during any free time, (I work on my degree….), but seriously, I enjoy activities with my friends and family, traveling to new and old places, refinishing older pieces of furniture, music, reading, and being outside with my 3-year old Golden Retriever named Ellie.

Ellie greets everybody with a toy offering.
