Joan Schoenecker

Welcome students.  I am Mrs. Schoenecker and I will be teaching 10th grade AVID and  Chemistry .  This will be my 10th year at Southwest High School and my 20th year in the district.  This year Mr. Abbott will be co-teaching both classes with me.

Chemistry - Room 07

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  07

Welcome to 10th grade!  You will need the same organizational materials as last year.  This includes a pencil pouch with pencils, pens, a large eraser, highlighters and notebooks or paper for Cornell notes.  All of you will need a calculator for chemistry this year.  A TI-30 type or any calculator that does scientific notation.



 If you would like to contact me, the fastest way is through email.   My email address is   Mr. Abbott's email is  You can also find our email addresses on the Southwest home page.  I post notes and other class information on my website so that is a good place to start if you want some information.


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