I remember Mrs Schoen always being the most desired teacher for fifth grade. EVERYONE wanted her! I believe it was the beginning of my fifth grade year when she moved to the middle school so I missed out for fifth grade. I was, however, lucky enough to get her for homeroom one year. What a sweet lady she was! I am very saddened to learn of her passing. My thoughts and prayers are with her friends and family.

Mrs. Schoen taught me middle school language arts. She was a wonderful teacher! What stands out most about her as a teacher was how caring she was. She always made me feel welcome and cared about, which is something a middle-schooler doesn’t always feel. She made a difference in the world. I thank her for that.

I will always remember Mrs. Schoen! She was both my geography and English teacher in 6th grade. She was one of the kindest/gentlest teachers I had. Her class was always enjoyable and she always made her students feel comfortable. She will truly be missed!

Mrs. Shoen was my sixth grade English teacher many moons ago. She was my favorite part of middle school, not because I loved English, but because she always had a smile on her face. Even when she was getting on to a student, she had a way of making you feel as though she really cared. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. She was a truly special lady!
