Dr. Deborah (Debbie) Schmidt
Meet Dr. Schmidt
I am excited to be begin my 26th year in SLPS and my 5th year here at McKinley!
- 7th Grade Pre-AP American History Colonization – 1877
- 8th Grade Elective – Introduction to Law
- Traveling – I’ve been to over 20 different countries, but 2 of them are no longer countries.
- Reading – Science Fiction / Horror Fiction / Historical Fiction. My favorite author is Neil Gaiman
- Food – Baking, experimental cooking, watching shows about food, and trying different cuisines.
Although I have lived in several different places (Chicago, IL, Osage, IA, Gillette, WY to name a few) St. Louis is the place I call home. In fact, I live just under a mile from McKinley so you may see me walking to and from school or walking my dog (Woody) around the neighborhood.
