Ms. Schoonmaker

It is my absolute pleasure to be your teacher for this school year. I teach math and my hope is that before our time together ends, you are as excited and passionate about math as I am. The careers of the future are not even defined yet, but I can assure you that math will be a major factor in them all.                       

The possibllities are INFINITE!

Teaching is my second career, one I needed to pursue once I realized it was my passion! I graduated from SUNY New Paltz with 3 degrees. I know ... I got a little carried away ... but I love to learn.

I have a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in MATH EDUCATION, accompanied by another master's degree in EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION. 

I believe every child is entitled to an exciting and motivating educational experience. Education should light fires and ensure that they burn bright for a life time. That is what I intend to do. The most rewarding times in my career have been when a student tells me that they finally love math and are intrigued by the challenges it provides.

Will this course be challenging? Absolutely...there is no denying! But I promise to give every student the tools they need to be successful. They need to provide the desire, responsiblitiy and effort.

I live and teach in the Marlboro community so I have a strong interest in making our school the best it can be. 

Parents - my plan is to work together for the benefit of your child.

Students - get ready to work hard and give your best will be amazed as what you can do.
