Jason Schmidt strives to bring technical and analytical thinking in service to the Greenville food production community through collaborative projects.
Past projects at Frito-Lay and General Mills provide Jason with insight into technical problem-solving within a food production corporation. Prior to teaching high school, Jason served the Pacific Northwest for two years in the Federal Way AmeriCorps program where he gained experience leading students in community civic engagement service-learning projects. During his years in education, Jason learned to develop inquiry-based, long-term, technically challenging projects in the high school science curriculum for physical science and chemistry.
Jason’s special interests include soil and water conservation, community gardening, production planning and urban farming. He hopes that his projects inspire future farmers and residents to use our land more carefully and teach students how to be better thinkers through effective analysis of data, excellence in communication, collaboration, and curiosity.
