Kindergarten through 3rd grade
Mrs. Schnieders grew up in Seattle Washington. She then moved to Salem Oregon to attend Corban University where she earned a degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Bible. After three years of teaching fourth and fifth grades in public school, Mrs. Schnieders came to Hillside to teach kindergarten.
With a passion for tailoring education to help each child grow and thrive, Mrs. Schnieders fell in love with Hillside’s unique setting and structure. The small class sizes allow her to know her students well and address the needs of the whole child as she teaches. While she now loves teaching Kindergarten she also treasures the time she gets to interact with older students in Hillside’s multi-grade classrooms.
After working at Camp Courageous for two summers Mrs. Schnieders met and fell in love with her now husband Eric, and made the decision to leave the Pacific Northwest to live in Iowa. She loves being outside, traveling, and building. She even built her own tiny house.
