My name is Dan Schmidt. I’m excited to be starting another year at Basehor Linwood Middle School as a physical education, health and leadership teacher. I graduated from Benedictine College with a bachelors degree in health and physical education, and from Baker University with a masters in School Leadership. I started my teaching career in the Leavenworth Catholic Schools in 1990. While there I taught physical education, health, was athletic director and dean of students. While coaching there, I served as head basketball, volleyball, track and powerlifting coach. Here at Basehor, I will be coaching volleyball, girls basketball and track. I enjoy being in the Basehor Linwood School district and working with such a talented and dedicated staff.
