Meet Gwyn

The first time Gwyn Schneck introduced herself to a classroom of 16-year-olds, you can imagine that she was nervous. She was only 22 years old herself. She repeatedly practiced in her mind how to explain the pronunciations of her last name “Schneck” to the kids. As she pointed to her lips with “SHHHHH” and her neck with “NECK”, the class laughed. At that moment Gwyn was forever hooked on kids.

Gwyn Schneck spent 13 years teaching high school Family and Consumer Science classes and 20 years as a High School Guidance Counselor within Tempe Union High School District. Gwyn has a Bachelor of Science in Education from Baylor University and a Master of Education in Counseling from Arizona State University. She loved every moment of the thirty three years of public education in the state of Arizona. As a teacher she taught True Colors® personality profile, learning styles, and study skills in all levels and subjects. She proposed and piloted the Tempe Union Child Development/Preschool Program.

As a counselor she developed gifted programming in her school district and helped fabulous students get into schools like Stanford, Georgetown, and Harvard. However, she also developed classes for at-risk students and held the hands of hurting kids as they faced the crises of their lives. She helped families in the worst times of their kid’s lives, such things as: death of a family member, divorce of parents, sexual assault and/or molestation, depression and suicidal thoughts, teen pregnancy, and self mutilation.

Throughout this time she raised two children with her husband of 33 years. She was involved in teaching Bible study in her local church during all these years and for 9 years of her girls teen age years she led out in the local chapter of National Charity League, Inc.®Parenting her own teenagers helped Gwyn walk in the shoes of the families she worked with. With a renewed and clear understanding of the world teens are growing up in, Gwyn became increasingly aware of the lack of support for parents.

As Gwyn reached the retirement point in public education, she knew that the next leg of her journey must be focusing on parents. She continues supporting kids, but also helping strengthen parents through speaking, encouraging families in her writing and helping all of us know God and each other better through group facilitation and teaching.

Gwyn is an experienced, qualified, knowledgeable, and heartfelt counselor, speaker, writer, and teacher; she would love to encourage your family.
