Mrs. Schneider

My  name is Judy Schneider, and I am delighted to be your child’s teacher this year.  I am a lifetime resident of Mascoutah and both my husband, Tom, and I are Holy Childhood Alumni.  We have been married for 23 years and have three amazing daughters:  Maddie 20, Ellie 17, and Katie 13.

Up until our preschool program started in the fall of 2008, I had been a stay at home mom for 9 years.  Prior to that I taught 3rd and 4th grade at Shiloh School and then taught two years in 1st grade at Laverna Evans in O’Fallon.  I had always said that if and when I was ready to return to the classroom, it would have to be either teaching part time as a preschool teacher or at Holy Childhood where my daughters attend; and now I have both!  I couldn’t be more excited to begin this tenth year of our preschool program.
