Kari Schmitz

Metro District Recruiter

My early career was spent in a preschool classroom at a child care center teaching counting, sharing, hand-washing, and so much more! From there, I became a center director where I went through the accreditation process and Parent Aware Rating process several times. It was challenging but rewarding work!

I enjoy working with young children, of course, but I also enjoy partnering with families, teachers, and providers. I am passionate about quality early learning and helping others improve outcomes for young children.
