Welcome to our classroom. We are student's in 4th through 6th grade.

Greetings from Etoile Clerc!

My name is Lori Schmidt and I am the new teacher in the DHH intermediate classroom.

I’ve been here since mid-November and my official start date was January 12. We are having a good time adjusting; crazy, but good. I am very thankful for all of the support I’ve been given.

We’ve done a little bit of everything curriculum wise these past 3 weeks. In Science we’ve studied the water cycle, gases, liquids and solids, and we are starting a geometry and measurement unit in math. The past two weeks Thawin has been telling the story, Hana’s Suitcase to the class. It is a biography about a Czech girl and her family during World War II, their lives, struggles and tragedy. It is full of vivid images of a loving family and a side story about a woman in Tokyo who runs a small Museum and is eager to bring Hana’s untold story to life. We will be joining the Renaissance Center on a field trip to the Seattle Children’s theater, to see the play. Having Thawin tell the story in ASL has brought the book to life for our class and they have really enjoyed the time we’ve spent with it.

I hope to have a guest speaker come in the next couple of weeks and share a bit about World War II, and her parents experience. Her parents were Deaf and also, Holocaust survivors.

Again, I’m thankful to everyone who continues to support me during this time of transition, especially my team, Thawin, Elise, Kim, Jessica, and Debra.

We are looking forward to all that spring semester will bring!
