Recently, Vanessa Schmidt was nominated as our Teacher of the Year at Maple Ridge Elementary. Mrs. Schmidt is our special education teacher here, and works with dozens of students. She is very conscientious about making sure each student is successful, and goes above and beyond to help them be successful. Not only is Mrs. Schmidt a wonderful teacher, but her colleagues feel that she is always positive and willing to work with different schedules and grade levels. We love Mrs. Schmidt!
