Mr. Andrew Schoenfeld begins his 4th year in the teaching ministry. He will be teaching 5th and 6th grade with some departmentalization. His wife Heather, works, at American Family Children's Hospital as a Certified Child Life Specialist. 

My teaching philosophy:

I believe as teachers we hold a critical role in the development of young people, not only in subject area, but also in their spiritual lives. One of the many blessings of being a teacher is not only teaching God's saving message, but serving as an example to God's children of how to live for Christ. 

My favorite Bible verse:

Jeremiah 29:11: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." I love the reminder in the front of church every Sunday! God's plans are far greater than mine.

Why you should consider a Holy Cross education:

Holy Cross is a special place where God's Word is integrated in every subject area. We value relationships with parents, fellow teachers, and all our students. Our students have the blessing to nourish their souls as they continue their walk with the Lord.
