Tim Schermbeck began his career as an educator in 1999, teaching fourth grade. He has since taught at both high school and middle school campuses, teaching geography, history, composition, and yearbook classes along the way. He has spent most of the last decade as a middle school language arts teacher and thinks he has found his happy place working in an energetic, unpredictable world of middle school kids.
Mr. Schermbeck has a Bachelor of Science in Education from Concordia University in Nebraska and a M.A. in Humanities from the University of Texas at Dallas. Because of the work he did in his graduate studies, Mr. Schermbeck is excited about the opportunity to do cross-curricular projects at Wagner Middle School. He is thrilled that there will be chances for students to support each other and for the campus community to grow together through the use of shared space and collaborative learning. More than anything, though, he is excited about meeting Wagner students and Wagner parents.
When he is not a school, Mr. Schermbeck is probably cooking, reading, spending as many hours outside as humanly possible, or hanging out with his family, possibly all at the same time. Oh, or riding his bike, which he likes to do. A lot. Like everywhere: to the grocery store, to the gym, and yes, to school.
