Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Lara Schmid


I am very lucky to be a part of YWLA and have 5 years of prior teaching experience with both 7th and 8th grade curriculum. I am married to a professor at TCU, have a son who is starting college this fall in Vermont, a 10 year old step-son who loves to act, three dogs, three cats, five chickens, loads of toads, & my hobbies are gardening and cooking. I absolutely love teaching and the most rewarding part of my day is sharing knowledge with students in a way that inspires them to learn more and view science as more than formulas or variables or laws or theories - but as a foundation that connects the world, all things in the world, and all things in the universe.
