    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 is even better because we are back to in-person learning!   We will have fun and I'm very happy to be sharing this year with you.  

    I am Mrs. Schoenfelder and this will be my 30th 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 in college in Wisconsin.  I also have an adorable granddaughter who is a year old.  We 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.  We will be reading many different, excellent pieces of literature this year, including short stories, poetry, books, and a play.  We will also be working on improving our writing using different assignments.   


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