6th Grade Math
6th Grade Lead
MS Math Placement Coordinator
My name is Ms. Schilling, and this will be my sixth year teaching and my fifth year at New West Charter School. I love being a part of a middle school team as well as having the opportunity to work for a school that consistently puts its students and their education first.
I was born in New Orleans (Who Dat nation) but raised in Mandeville, Louisiana, and always loved math from a young age. I received my Bachelor of Science in finance with a minor in mathematics from Louisiana Tech in March 2016. After graduating from college, I wasn’t sure where life was taking me; so, while waiting tables and waiting for life to guide me, I decided to start substitute teaching to earn extra money. After six months of substitute teaching, I decided to return to Louisiana Tech in July 2017 to pursue a Master of Arts in Teaching Secondary Mathematics Education Grades 6-12. During my time in graduate school, I was also a full-time high school math teacher at a tiny school named Quitman High School in Quitman, Louisiana. While teaching at Quitman, I taught every high school math subject up to Pre-Calculus as well as 8th Grade Math. Upon graduating from Louisiana Tech again in May 2018, I made the big move to Thousand Oaks and obtained a teaching position here at New West for 6th Grade Math and Pre-Algebra.
I have one child, a Miniature Australian Shepard named Margot, who is about to turn 6. Outside of the classroom, I love to take Margot to the dog park or out and about town so we can explore and get to know the city better. I plan on getting a sister for Margot soon, but not until I have a big backyard for her and her sister to play in together.
I am super excited for the 2022-2023 school year! I can’t wait to meet each and every one of my students and look forward to an amazing year. Who dat!
