Dr. Carleigh Schoenleber comes to Wheaton after serving for ten years as a classroom teacher in several grades at the elementary level. She has taught in both public and private schools in Illinois, providing a wealth of experience to share with Wheaton students as they seek God’s call for their teaching careers. She began serving at Wheaton as a clinical placement supervisor for student teachers in the field and has continued to add more courses and responsibilities each year. A Wheaton alumnus of the Education program, she is committed to further mentoring and developing the next generation of educators to be agents of change in their future classrooms.

With a wide range of classroom experiences across different schools and grade levels, she is passionate about promoting positive and collaborative professional relationships across any context. She is well-versed in technology integration, not only from her own classroom experiences, but from her doctoral research on the positive impact of peer-coaching on technology integration in the classroom. She is committed to training educators to use technology to enhance their teaching using research-based best practices.

Dr. Schoenleber lives in Naperville, Illinois with her husband and two children. As a former Wheaton swimmer, she loves spending time in the water whenever possible, especially with her children. Besides education, she is passionate about working out, being outdoors with her family, and serving in her local church. She is grateful and humbled to give back to the Education program that prepared and fueled her to pursue teaching and now higher education.
