Mrs. Schwab has truly enjoyed the students here at New Haven. When asked what her favorite thing about New Haven was, Mrs. Schwab responded with the “Tradition of Excellence.” She also mentioned the high standards the students have to live up to, saying, “Most students work very hard for it.” In her free time, Mrs. Schwab also likes to read or paint, when she isn’t invested in all of her school work.
Students at New Haven are going to miss Mrs. Schwab a lot. Kyle Luecke says when he was in her class, he always found humor in her corny jokes she told all the time. “I thought it was funny that those jokes would make her laugh, even if they were kinda bad.” One of the jokes Kyle remembers is; “What do you call a cow with no legs? Ground beef.”
Kyle Ruediger said, “New Haven is losing a great teacher. She has given me the education I need to continue to college, and I would like to thank her for that.”
Kayla Borcherding wasn’t sure if their was anyone who could replace Mrs. Schwab at New Haven, but she “highly doubts it.”
Nate Offard said, “Mrs. Schwab is really good at explaining things, making everything easier for me. I’m glad I don’t have to take an English credit next year; I don’t know what I’d do without her help.”
Mrs. Schwab is a treasured teacher here, preparing students for college and bringing joy to students through her silly jokes. Mrs. Schwab won’t be missed by just students, though. Mrs. Laune, the librarian, says, ”Mrs. Schwab is great teacher. All the students that attend college and come back to visit have to thank Mrs. Schwab, saying that the stuff they are learning in college English, they already know because of her.”
Mrs. Hausmann, the Freshman and Sophomore English, teacher also will be sad to see her go. “Although I am disappointed to see her go, I'm truly happy for the new and exciting opportunities for her and her family. She has changed me and my classroom for the better. It is a bitter-sweet goodbye,” stated Mrs. Hausmann.
When Mrs. Miller was asked how she felt about Mrs. Schwab leaving the district, she responded, “I feel privileged to have known her as a student and as a co-worker. I was a sophomore her first year in the district. She has made a huge impact on my life, encouraging me to go outside of my comfort zone to try new things. I will truly miss her and wish her the best.”
Mr. Peirick, the P.E. coach and a former student of Mrs. Schwab’s, said, “I don’t think I could’ve been better prepared for college when I went. Mrs. Schwab had me more prepared than I ever could’ve been.”
She also has a quote she lives by, “If you’re not growing, you’re dying.” In Mrs. Schwab’s time here at New Haven, she has met amazing people, learned the what the Tradition of Excellence is, and is going to miss teaching at New Haven High School.
