Teacher Biography

R_SchneidMrs. Renee Schneid

The 2019-2020 school year is my 19th year at OLP. I taught fifth grade at OLP for five years, then moved to seventh grade. I presently teach our eighth grade class.

Prior to being at OLP, I taught fourth grade for a year at St. Mary’s St. Clairsville (Diocese of Steubenville), and I then taught at St. Joseph (Diocese of Steubenville) for fourteen years, where I taught fifth grade for seven years and Kindergarten for seven years.

I am a member of Our Lady of Peace Parish, and a member of OLP Parish Council. I am married with two children, both of whom are proud alumns of OLP and CCHS.

I graduated from Ohio University with honors. I have a BS degree in Elementary Education. I am certified K-8 in the state of WV in all subjects.

I believe in educating the whole child, spiritually, as well as academically. I strongly believe in a Catholic education. We educate the whole child. All children are included, and all are treated like family.

If your child is already a part of the Our Lady of Peace family you are to be congratulated. Your choice to enroll your child in a Catholic school is to be commended. We take pleasure in welcoming you to an exciting time filled with challenges and great opportunities.

Summer Reading & Math Work

All incoming 8th Grade students are required to read two books over the summer. There will be question pages to complete and return to your teacher on the first day of school in August. There will also be a test on each book early in the school year.  The two required books are:

When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead

Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko

 

Students are also required to complete the Summer Math Packet. 8th Grade Math students are to use loose leaf paper to answer the math problems. Algebra students are to do all work on the answer grid sheets included, not on the problem sheets. Return all papers. These papers will count as your first Test Grade in Math.
