Fork Union Military Academy congratulates Ms. Jen Schnelle for being named Teacher of the Term for Term 5 of the 2022-2023 academic year. Cadets submit nominations for the Teacher of the Term at the conclusion of each grading term. The cadet nominations are reviewed and evaluated by the Teacher of the Term/Year Committee, which is comprised of non-academic staff members. After considering cadet nominations, the Committee announces Teacher of the Term.
Ms. Schnelle is in her fourth year at the Academy and taught biology during Term 5. She is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin with a Bachelor of Science degree in English and Zoology and later received her Master of Teaching in English Secondary Education from the University of Virginia.
Outside of the classroom, Ms. Schnelle assists with class scheduling primarily for eighth graders, aids the athletic department with game timing and helps with the yearbook.
Ms. Schnelle received nominations that stated:
“Ms. Schnelle is just all around a good teacher. She gave the class enough time to finish work and lets us do makeup work, but she didn’t let us have all the class time. She had a great plan to deal with cadets acting up and never let cadets get away with doing the wrong thing.”
“Ms. Schnelle is an awesome teacher. She has helped me a lot. She does a great job teaching.”
Congratulations, Ms. Schnelle!
