Teacher Spotlight: Nick Schmidt
by Krista Gerstner
Nick Schmidt was born on December 29, 1995. He moved around as a kid but
moved to Hays, Kansas in eighth grade where he graduated high school. He
went to Fort Hays State University where he got a bachelor's degree in
secondary math education. “I wanted to coach and thought teaching would
be very rewarding.” he said. He also claimed to have a great high school
math teacher who played a large role in his decision.
Schmidt came to Medicine Lodge High School Last year, where he spent his
last semester of college student teaching. After graduating, he decided
to come back to MLHS as a teacher. He liked the small town environment
and the town’s proximity to family, but most of all he liked the people.
“The school has great administration,” Schmidt said. “That’s probably
the biggest reason why I chose this position” Today he is married with
one child: a sixteen month old girl, and a baby on the way.
