    Ms. Schmidt 

    Autistic Support Teacher


    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! My name is Ms. Maura Schmidt and I will be your child’s Autistic Support teacher. This will be my fifth year teaching at Burgettstown Area Elementary Center. I am passionate about creating hands on learning experiences for my students. I love seeing the creations of my students when they are inspired. 

    In my classroom, I utilize Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Direct Instruction.  In my classroom, we incorporate Natural Environment Teaching (NET) where we practice the targets students are taught in their ABA sessions in the natural environment. NET experiences include cooking, crafts and STEM experiments.
