"Every child needs a champion - an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be." --- Rita Pierson

Trudy Schnell

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Library Media and Psychology from Chadron State College in 1988. Before joining the Scottsbluff Public Schools, I taught at Cedar Canyon, Gering Public Schools and Lake Alice School. I left education for the private sector for a number of years before returning to teach at Lake Alice. I earned her Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction at Chadron State College in 2006. I completed the Primarily Math specialist program at UNL and later earned a second master's in special education.

I am a student services provider at  Lake Minatare, Longfellow and St. Agnes.  I am passionate about getting kids to read and becoming life-long learners so I spend a lot of time perusing used book stores and garage sales in search of books to add to my vast collection of children's literature.

I have three children: Victoria (14), Leticia (10), and William (9). In my free time I enjoy reading, gardening, quilting, blogging, fishing, and geocaching. I am also a hobby farmer and talk daily to my goats, turkeys, guineas and chickens.
