Danielle Schmitz


I am Danielle Schmitz and I am the 1st grade teacher at Roncalli Primary School. I am orginally from Le Mars, IA where I attended grade school and high school at Gehlen Catholic. I continued my education at South Dakota State University majoring in Early Childhood Education. During my time at South Dakota State University, I participated in an Elementary Education cooperative program with Dakota State University. I graduated from South Dakota State University in May 2018. From August 2018 to May 2020, I was a 1st grade teacher at Holy Cross in the Bishop Heelan Catholic Schools System in Sioux City, IA.

During my free time, I enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, reading, binge watching my favorite shows on Netflix and hanging out with my dog, Rhett. During the summer, you can also find me traveling the great state of South Dakota helping with South Dakota Farmers' Union camps. I look forward to this new adventure in the Aberdeen Catholic School System. I am grateful to have the opportunity to teach and inspire young minds while also proclaiming the Catholic faith. I look forward to this upcoming school year and meeting all of the wonderful students, parents, faculty, and staff of the Aberdeen Catholic School System. 

God Bless!
