Maggie Schumacher works as a literacy coach/reading specialist at Jack Young Middle School in the Baraboo School District. Before fully immersing herself in the world of literacy, she spent seven years working as a special education teacher of students with learning disabilities; the first three of these years were spent in the Arcadia School District before she made the move to Baraboo. Maggie received her bachelor’s degree from UW-Eau Claire and her master’s degree and reading specialist certification from Viterbo University in La Crosse. She is currently pursuing her gifted and talented certification from a collaborative UW-Whitewater/UW-Steven’s Point cohort. She is a member of the ILA, WSRA, and WTAG and has presented at both the WSRA reading convention and the Wisconsin RtI Summit.
Maggie lives in Reedsburg, WI and enjoys reading, traveling, the outdoors, running, and spending time with her nieces and nephews. She recently spent a month traveling through Europe, is an avid Packers fan, and enjoys going to the movies (mostly for the popcorn!), seeing theatrical productions, and listening to live music whenever she can!
