Elizabeth Schau

South East alumni may remember her from her teaching days at the junior high school, but now Ms. Elizabeth Schau is working in the City High library.  Schau is excited to work with the familiar (and new) faces in her twelfth year of teaching.

“[Coming to City] was an exciting opportunity,” Schau said. “I really enjoyed working with junior high students, but I also wanted a chance to work with older students as well and get to know them at a different age.  By far, my favorite part [of my job] is working with students, but I also enjoy the variety.  No day is the same.”

Schau believes teaching is about inspiring students to take matters into their own hands and take initiative.

“I think it’s really important to enable and empower students to become learners,” Schau said. “Whether that’s helping them become better readers, or better researchers, I’m just trying to put as much into their hands as possible.”

Schau spends a lot of time with her family and has four children.  The oldest is a seventh grader.  “I enjoy reading and running,” Schau said. “Well, I don’t know if I enjoy it, but I run.”

Students are likely to find Schau in the library throughout the day, ready to recommend a good book or assist in a research project.  Students are advised to heed her words of wisdom:

“Read as much as you can and always question your sources.”
