    Welcome to Mrs. Schoenfelder's 8th Grade

     English Language Arts Class

  • Hi!  

    Welcome to ELA!  Eighth grade is usually a fun and exciting time, and this year will be unusual too!   We will have fun, though, and I'm very happy to be sharing this year with you.  

    I am Mrs. Schoenfelder and this will be my 29th year teaching at AUGS.  Mr. Schoenfelder and I have three kids: a daughter, Erin, who teaches in Woodstock, a son Patrick, who is in college in Iowa, and a son Niall who is heading off to college in Wisconsin.  In April, our daughter and son-in-law had a baby, so now I'm a grandma!  We also have two cats and a crazy dog named Cubby.  My favorite thing is spending time with my family.  I also love to read and write.   This year we will be working on our reading and writing skills, working on our study skills, and preparing for high school.  

    Please look at the Remote Learning tab and join the Google Classroom that you have on your schedule.  I will have a weekly plan under the tab for your class, either Language Arts Class or Honors Language Arts Class page.

    If you ever have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them.  Email works best for me.  My email address is:
