Chief Education Officer
Mr. Victor Schoenfeldt
Hello! I am Victor Schoenfeldt, the Principal / Education Director for Sierra Nevada Academy Charter School. It has been my pleasure to serve our school community for the past 17+ years.
My educational experience began with obtaining my Bachelor’s degree from New Mexico State University with a degree in Marketing and a minor in Professional Golf Management. After graduating I moved to Savannah, Georgia where I served as a golf professional for multiple years. I relocated back to the west coast and became a licensed contractor where I opened a business as a sole proprietorship. The main focus of my career was high-end finish work, consisting of custom cabinetry and trim work. Although the field was rewarding, I wanted to help those in need, especially children. I received my Master’s degree from Gonzaga University in Initial Teaching, which is located in Spokane, Washington. From there, I took my first teaching job in Phoenix, Arizona. My teaching experience lasted four years before I returned to Reno, where I first taught at SNACS as a 5th / 6th grade teacher in 2005. After obtaining my administrative credential from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2006, I have served as the Principal / Education Director since then.
Aside from being a Bay Area sports fan, I love to spend time with my family. They are my joy! My favorite pass times are playing golf, working on various home projects, cooking, jumping in a cold Sierra lake, hiking, gardening, reading, physical activities, and creating smiles on children’s faces!
