Hello, everyone!  My name is Jill Schaeffer and I am the second grade teacher here at Maywood Public School.  I am originally from this area.  I grew up on a farm in the Stockville area and attended Maywood Public School from kindergarten through twelfth grade.  After graduation, I attended Chadron State College for a year and a half before transferring to the University of Nebraska at Kearney to finish up my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Mathematics.  I also completed a Master of Education degree in Educational Administration K-12 from Chadron State College in May 2014.  I got married in August 2012 to George Schaeffer.  My husband is a farmer/rancher from Stapleton, Nebraska.

My philosophy as a teacher is to help all students be successful.  I feel that every student has the potential to find success in the classroom and that the teacher can guide the students toward their own path of excellence through a partnership between the teacher and student to continually improve and strive to do their best.
