Meet the creator of Smart Mom HQ

Dr. Tawna Schmidt has made being a mom the top priority in her life for over 30 years! It is not an easy job, but the rewards are endless and the payoff is never-ending.

She has also been a lifelong learner herself and appreciates the learning process.

Balancing family life with a career is anything but simple. However, there are specific tasks that can be simplified to limit the overwhelm and frustration that can mount with a growing family.

From an educational aspect, including premium learning resources that are free or very affordable was always on the Smart Mom HQ roadmap.

As a lifelong learner herself Dr. Tawna Schmidt appreciates the learning process and the importance of creating a strong foundation in the early years.

Moms play a vital role in this process.

Her early career in education started as a high school social studies and language arts teacher. Upon earning her master’s degree in school counseling, she branched into the role of a school counselor for students from Pre-K through high school.

Earning her doctorate degree in education advanced her career further in the world of post-secondary education as a university professor. During her time in this role, Dr. Schmidt spent numerous hours each week observing and evaluating student teachers in their classrooms, as well as teaching education courses on classroom management, curriculum and instruction, and other education-oriented courses.

For this reason, you will find reviews of homeschool curriculums and similar types of information to use as you grow your family’s learning foundation.

Smart Mom HQ has been in the works for many years with a long roadmap that focuses on top-quality educational resources for children and tips to simplify life as a mom.
