Joan Schoenecker

Welcome students.  I am Mrs. Schoenecker and I will be teaching 12th grade AVID and  Honors Chemistry .  This will be my 12th year at Southwest High School and my 22nd year in the district. 


Chemistry - Room N135

Chemistry is required for graduation and is designed to meet district and state physicial science and chemistry standards. It is also Year 5 in the Middle Years Program (IB). On the first day of school, bring a notebook (preferably a composition notebook with the hard cover) and a pen or pencil to write with. You will need these materials every day!!  You will be assigned a textbook after school starts.  You will also need a TI-30 calculator for this class.


AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) - Room  W102

Welcome to 12th grade!  You will need the same organizational materials as last year.  This year will be modeling college study skills and applications for college and scholarships. 

 If you would like to contact me, the fastest way is through email.   My email address is    You can also find m yemail address on the Southwest home page.  I post notes and other class information on my website, mostly the calendar below, so that is a good place to start if you want some information.


I look forward to meeting you and having a great year.
