About me

About me
I am a graduate of Texas Tech University where I graduated with my degree in Biology with a concentration in both Ecology & Environmental Science. I am happily married to my beautiful wife, Rachael Schmidt, and we are the proud parents of our Little Leopard, Emily Kate Schmidt.
Science has always been an interest and a passion of mine. I think that having an understanding of the world and universe we live in is invaluable, and that science is widely considered a difficult subject to understand. My goal is to kindle a love for and deepen students' understanding of science. As a science teacher, I conduct hands-on, data-driven learning and create engaging, memorable lessons for my students.
I strongly believe that each student is unique and deserves an individualized approach. I truly enjoy working with all levels of students, helping them learn and grow, apply what they learn beyond the classroom, and foster a love for science.
I have been an educator since 2019 and with Lovejoy since 2021. I have taught On-Level Biology, Advanced Biology, GT Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. However, I am certified to teach all science courses grades 6-12. This year I am teaching Advanced & GT Biology.


Many students are already taking advantage of these. However, just as a reminder, my tutorial times are listed below! Students are also free to visit any of the other biology teachers as well.
